You use Kölner application milk as a base for simple gilding with metal or silver leaf indoors. You should apply it as thin as possible to a dust-free surface (e.g., with a gilding brush) and wait at least 15 minutes before applying the metal leaf to it. Since the application milk is adhesive for up to 60 hours, you have enough time to apply leafing to even more substantial areas all at once.
The thin version is easy to spread so that you can use it with ease for flat gilding and uneven surfaces. The viscous milk is not so fluid and is, therefore, better for lines and writing. Very absorbent substrates are best sealed with plaster primer, synthetic resin varnish, or shellac.
