Gilt Cream is an easy-to-apply gilt finish used to retouch damaged gilding or to gild new surfaces. Available in a range of intermixable colours, it is suitable for restoring old gilding work and for giving a gilt finish to new surfaces.
HOW TO USE
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.
