I have made these gilding cushions myself. Measuring 9" x 6" the leather is not only glued, but riveted in position with brass rivets. The leather I chose is particularly dense and tough. It will last many years.

Price £39.99

            

 

 

 

 

gilding supplies jhs glair 

This is the new glaire manufactured by J.Hewit & Sons Ltd in England. It's water based so poses no problem from fumes unlike the other popular shellac based glair.

This is the size you need for gilding onto leather.

It is easy to apply with a brush or cotton wool pad, you can also leave this glaire once applied and come back weeks later if needed to do the gilding.

 

Price £8.99 including shipping  temporarily out of stock

             

 

 

 

gold leaf supplies

50g of Fine grade pumice powder, this is essential for keeping the gilding cushion free of grease.

Price £13.50 including shipping 

            

 

 

gilding supplies gold leafImitation gold leaf is a vastly under rated material, I used it all the time in our workshops for a variety of things. It comes in various shades, the one I sell here is a very close match to 23 carat gold leaf in colour.

If you are new to gilding on leather I suggest using this economical leaf with which to practice upon. It has to be handled in the same way as genuine gold leaf, and this leaf will adhere to leather in the same way when used with a suitable glaire.

 

 

 

These prices are all inclusive, they include shipping by airmail to your door whether in Europe or the USA.
