This wax-based medium can be used to add non-fading color or a gilded finish to materials such as Metal Castings, Filigree, Brass Stampings, Ceramics, Wood, Etched Glass, Polymer Clay, Resin and more!
It can be applied as-is to clean, dry, oil-free surfaces with a cloth, cotton swab, sponge, your finger in a rubbing motion... or thin it with paint thinner to create a paste, paint, stain or wash.
Layer the colors one on top of the other to create interesting effects,.
Smooth surfaces should be slightly roughened with fine grit sandpaper or steel wool before application.
Gilders Paste dries to the touch in 10-15 minutes and completely dries in 12 hours with no tacky residue.
These UV resistant colors can be layered to create stunning and unique finishes and textures!
NOTE: Gilders Paste is a very dry medium, it is meant to be rubbed onto a surface to create highlights. You can also paint it on a surface but paint thinner must be added. Your container may arrive with small cracks in the wax and appear somewhat thick and may even show cracks - this is normal for this product. If you want a liquid "paint" type product, we recommend a product such as Vintaj Patinas. If after time you feel like your Gilders Paste is just too dry, you can add a couple drops of Turpenoid to the container and close the lid. After a few minutes it should appear looser and the contents will have been restored to a more workable state.
1.5 oz container.
WARNING: Contains FLAMMABLE solvent.
