burnisher

A genuine agate burnisher at a very affordable price, I imported this from China where they have been gilding for many centuries, it is less than half the price of burnishers currently available. Price £16.99 

 

gilding knife

 

These gilding knives will last for generations, they are made from the finest Sheffield steel.

Price £28.99 shipping included

 

gilding supplies 

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

            

 

 

 

 

 

gold leaf supplies

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

Price £16.50 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.
