L.A. Gold Leaf Red Primer for gilding and graphic arts are finely ground pigmented products that eliminate the requirement for separate applications of a sealer, gesso or bole. They produce a smooth surface requiring no or very light sanding. This is not for use as an architectural coating.
The L.A. Gold Leaf primer is also currently available in Yellow Ocher, Red, and Light Gray. They can be intermixed to create varying color effects when gilding with gold, silver, aluminum, copper and composition leaf. Due to its unique formulation, the L.A. Gold Leaf Primer can be used on many substrates such as wood, plaster, metals, stone, concrete and composition surfaces.
The L.A. Gold Leaf Primer will seal the surface providing excellent adhesion for gilding and permit a high burnish, with a minimum of rubbing, when built up with multiple coats.
L.A. Gold Leaf Primer are manufactured utilizing premier resins exhibiting excellent adhesion and moisture resistance. The pigments utilized are recommended for gilding applications due to their lasting performance and color retention. The L.A. Gold Leaf Primer is excellent for use on exterior items such as weather vanes and caducei made of copper, bronze, steel or iron.
