pleasing colour to the gold leaf.

Gilding supplies - Simple Scribe Gold
Size. I developed this gold size (adhesive) after
using several of the acrylic based gold sizes. The problem they
had in my opinion was that they called for the user to apply
the gold leaf "at the right time", what the right time was

This is because this gold size dries sticky, a very simple idea
which has taken all the guesswork out of the gilding
This size is perfect for gilding onto paper and other

Imitation gold leaf is
a vastly under rated material, I used it all the time in
our workshops for a variety of things.
It comes in various
shades, the one I sell here is a very close match to 23
carat gold leaf in colour, it looks very convincing when
used in place of genuine gold leaf.
You can purchase it here from this site
at prices lower than most places online and lower than you
would pay in a store.
