application and advice


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.


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


Protect from extremes of temperature during storage and application.
