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. Per the manufacturer Instacoll has a shelf life of approx. 2 years.

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

Decided to give Instacoll a try after using Miniatum, which I really like. Instacoll takes a bit more time to prepare but it was easy to use (I watched the JNB video of Harvest preparing it) and the result was a beautifully smooth gilding surface.
