perfect for retouching damaged gilding or gilding new surfaces.
An easy-to-apply gilt finish, perfect for retouching damaged gilding or gilding new surfaces. Available in a range of intermixable colours.
Seal porous surfaces (e.g. woods and plaster) with Fontenay Base before applying Gilt Cream. Ensure surface is clean, dry and dust-free.
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.
Gilt Cream can be revived or thinned with turpentine or good quality white spirit.
