Roberson Oil Gold Size 60ml
Oil Size for Gilding with Metal Leaf and Bronze Powders.
Roberson Oil Gold Size for use with Schlag metal, gold leaf and bronze powders. Suitable for use over any non-absorbent painted or ground surface, canvas, panel, wall, glass or metal. If the surface is absorbent, as with gesso, seal the surface using Roberson shellac varnish. Size is ready when Sellotape tackiness is reached (Approximately 3 hours). Apply the leaf using absorbent cotton. Once applied the size remains tacky and workable for 1-2 hours. Do not rub or use lateral motion as this will mark the lead. Clean brushes in white spirit. Size is supplied in a tin with push and unscrew safety lid.
