Pure Fat Oil mixed with varnish made from damar pitch(resin) and wood grain alcohol or turpentine(thinners-reducers) to speed up dry time and to add strength-flexibility. Do not confuse strength-flexibility with longevity, pure fat oil size has the great durability over time and is why it is used for capital Domes and Statues where the public won't touch.

Gold Size-Alcohol-Water based


Clay Bole Red, Ocher or Gray, are Clay Pigments blended with powdered Rabbit skin glue, some also containing powdered shellac. Bole is painted onto surface, then when dry, may be activated by applying  "Gilders Liquor" a 50-50 mix of water and alcohol to active the rabbit skin glue in the mix with the water and the alcohol to activate the shellac, the clay pigments act as a primer-filler in rough cut areas of texture while the clay color provide a colored under-base in case of cracks or flaws in your gild. Once activated, the bole will be ready for gold leaf, if the bole . If it dries out, simply wet again and continue to gild until finished. Now dust off scewings or scrap dust and you end up with a satin finish or you  may take the next step with a smooth stone Agate Burnisher and polish down all of the gild to end up with a bright chrome-like finish.



Gold Size-Alcohol based

  • Instacoll Gold Size-Alcohol based, a two-part gold size system for exterior gold leaf gilding and interior leafing with gold, silver, and composition leaf. A super-shine or mirror gloss finish is achieved without agate burnishing. After Instacol has dried completely, apply the Activator to the area ready for gilding. Let dry and apply the leaf. Reactivate as necessary. The ultimate mirror gloss is obtained when gilding on a completely smooth surface with genuine gold patent leaf.
