It is a ready-to-use product specially designed for gilding or retouching of precious metals on porcelain and ceramics. It can be used both for new gilding and for retouching pre-existing gilding.
It is advisable to apply the product using a brush for details and retouches, such as those of the Cimabue series (page 139) and wait 15- 30 minutes for correct drying. If necessary, the product can be diluted with water up to a maximum of 10%. The leaf can be applied for a period of up to 8 hours.
Store in a cool, dry place in its own container, closed, and away from direct light and heat. The ideal temperature is 15-25°C with humidity under 50%.
Dilution percentage, application method and quantities applied may significantly affect the workability time. The most suitable application methods should be determined by experimentation on the basis of the surface being gilded and the desired result.
