Gilder’s Mop

(1 customer review)



The Gilder’s Mop is a soft-haired brush that is used to brush off excess gold leaf without damaging gilded surfaces. It’s a basic, yet essential tool for those gilding with Loose or Transfer (Patent) leaf. The synthetic hairs are used in place of animal hair, meaning there were no animals harmed in the process of making this brush.

Customers that have used our previous gilder’s mop will quickly become familiar with the quality and effectiveness with this product.

    Bought this brush to apply the 22K gold leaf to an engraved wood sign and it worked perfectly. The brush released the gold from the transfer sheet and helped apply to gold to the sizing without scratching the gold. (Other brushes I had at home scratched, even though I thought they were soft enough.)
