Gilt cream is mainly used for repair and touch-up work. The substrate cannot be absorbent and must sometimes, when necessary, be primed. Gilt cream has great covering ability and can be thinned with white spirit. As it thins, it should be evenly applied to the intended object with a brush (e.g. SYNTHETIC BRISTLE BRUSH, FLAT), a sponge or a lint free, soft cloth. After about 2 or 3 minutes, all the excess gilt cream must be carefully removed with a cloth and the cream then smoothed out. Depending on the temperature, drying time is approximately 1 or 2 hours. After drying, the cream can be polished by means of a soft cloth until a metallic shine appears. If so desired, small areas can be lightly polished using an AGATE POLISHING STONE. Following that process, the area should then be rubbed again with a soft cloth in order to achieve a shiny metallic effect.
Because the cream does not have a tarnish protector, it is generally used when an aging effect is wanted. If you want the original shine to remain as it is, you can apply a coat of FINISHING VARNISH to the gilt cream surface after it has dried.
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.
