Kolner system – high gloss base


SKU: N/A Category: Tag:


Size made with a yellow or transparent water base (component 1).

Use method

Surfaces must be free of dust, wax, oil and fat and perfectly dry. In the event of gilding on porous surfaces apply an acrylic varnish prior to Size application. Apply by brush or spray, diluting where appropriate if the product is too dense. For spray application dilute with 10-15% water at all times. Leaf can be applied 30-60 minutes after application depending on surface and environmental conditions. On completion, to obtain a uniformly glossy effect, wipe the surface with a non-fluffy cloth (such as microfibre).

Gilding on large surfaces

If the size dries its adhesive power will need to be reactivated with a specific activator (component 2, sold separately Kolner size activator ), above all where the surface to be treated is large.


8-10 m² / litre (undiluted)


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%.

Additional information

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.
