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.
S738. Shell Gold Tablet Powdered gold with a gum arabic binder. 23.75 carat. Comes in a transparent plastic container with a lid. Close lid after use. Use with a brush or pen to add real gold decoration to manuscripts, scrolls and calligraphic works. Shell gold can complement areas of gold leaf or it can be used alone.
We have discontinued the larger sizes because they did not offer any cost savings. Our small shell gold is approximately 7.5mm diameter x 4mm thick. However, size & weight varies slightly depending on the amount of residual water.
Shell gold prices are based on the worldwide gold market and may be different from what is printed in our catalog.
