Goldfinger is an easy-to-use gilding paste that comes in five different metallic colours. It is best used for gilding picture frames, plaster and wood figures, for restoration work, as well as for painting and stenciling work on different materials like textiles, leather or modelling clay.
The paste can be applied by rubbing it on with a soft cloth or simply with your fingertip. After a short drying time it can be polished to a nice sheen. Goldfinger produces a very even, homogenous surface that does not have any signs of metallic particles or smears. For intricate work involving depressions and undercuts such as those found on baroque picture frames, the paste can be thinned with white spirit or turpentine oil and applied with a brush. If you want the glossy appearance to last, you should also apply a coat of varnish (e.g. DALER ROWNEY GOLDFINGER VARNISH) - otherwise an aging effect will appear due to the exposure to the air causing oxidation. Goldfinger paste provides excellent coverage and is economical in use - a little Goldfinger goes a long way! It works best on porous or slightly abraded surfaces.
For decorative objects around the house, gilding with base materials like METAL LEAF, METAL GLOSS PAINTS and GILT CREAM is generally more than adequate. There is hardly any surface – be it wood, glass, paper, cardboard, polystyrene foam, wax, ceramic, porcelain, clay, stone, metal, leather, plastic or fabric – which cannot be gilded to great effect and relatively inexpensive in the bargain. The individual techniques involved are more comprehensively described under each separate medium.
