application

metal leaf adhesive

application
Seal porous surfaces with a Polyvine varnish. Apply thinly using a good quality brush. It is important no brush marks are visible these will show though the metal leaf. The size can be diluted with water to avoid brush marks. Leave for at least 15 minutes, the film will clear and remain tacky. The surface will then be in a prime state ready to receive the leaf. This prime state will remain indefinitely. It is important to completely cover all the size with the metal leaf, no size should be left uncovered.

caution
Always try the technique on a test piece before embarking on the project.

drying time: A minimum of 24 hours with ventilation
coverage: 10-15 square metres per litre
