S892. Instacoll Gold Size
S892. Instacoll (was item S479) Yellow color.

Available sizes:
1oz. or 3oz. wide-mouth jars
2oz. Nalgene dropper bottle
Bulk 1-liter bottle

Reggie Ezell, Harvest Crittenden, and Sheila Waters use this synthetic size for raised, mirror-finish gilding with gold leaf. They and many others have found it easier to use than traditional gesso made from slaked plaster. Yellow color allows you to see what you have applied.

Caution: Freezing adversely affects Instacoll. Those in the North or west of the Rockies should order during the warmer months.

S896. Artist and Illuminator Bridge.

Rest your hand on this sturdy wooden bridge as you work, adding detail to your gilding, lettering, and painting without smearing the wet portions. We have also been informed that the bridge is great for prevent smudging when using colored pencils. Bridge measures 3"x12" and sits 3/4" high, the feet have felt pads attached to the bottom. Made in the U.S. of solid cherry wood. A self-adhesive felt pad is included for those who want a cushion rest for their hand.
