Seal porous surfaces, such as woods and plaster, with Fontenay Base before applying Gilt Cream. Ensure surface is clean, dry and free from dust.

Apply to the surface with a cotton cloth or small brush for intricate areas. Allow to dry for a minimum of four hours, longer if possible, and either leave matt or buff to a shine. For a better finish we recommend applying several thin coats of Gilt Cream as opposed to one thick coat. Clean tools in white spirit.

Always test the product on a spare surface or inconspicuous area for colour, compatibility and end result.

Gilt Cream can be revived or thinned with turpentine or good quality white spirit.
