A clear Oil Base gilder’s adhesive (size) for slow leaf work. It affords excellent durability, flexibility and longer open time for interior and exterior surface gilding applications. The L.A. Gold Leaf Slow Set Size gilding size will achieve tack in approximately 10 to 12 hours and the tack will remain for approximately 24 hours. Total hard dry occurs in about 72 hours. It should be noted that tack and dry times are subjective to the gilder’s technique, thickness of the film and are approximate depending on the ambient temperature and humidity when applied.

I applied this late in the afternoon on a large engraved wood sign (after sealing the wood). It was ready to gold leaf in the morning and allowed me several hours to apply the gold leaf. Highly recommend this sizing.
