Here is a quick Video made by one of our super stockists demonstrating how to use the gilding powders.....ENJOY!!!!
Sealants: Sealing your piece can be a little tricky with Gilding powders as there are SO MANY options our there. Here are some tips to make the most of your powders.
Wax: Use the powders AFTER waxing. They will absorb into the wax and make a beautiful finish. You can also mix some of the powder in with your wax for a beautiful shimmering finish. Of course Pixie Dust Finishing Wax works perfectly for this method!
Water Base Sealers: You can use the powders BEFORE and/or AFTER. We suggest doing a tiny little test before. Some sealers are very thick causing you to "lose" some of the pigments and some of them are very thin giving you an amazing effect.
Oil Base Sealers/Famowood Glaze Coat: If you want your gilding powders to "float" to the surface creating a 3D like effect, use Famowood Glaze Coat for this look. We have seen some amazing applications and results. With oil base you want to use your powders FIRST (unless it's wax).
Cautions: While these powders are 100% all natural, they are still a powder and powders can go airborne. DO NOT SHAKE your powders. If they get a little shook up...let them sit for a few minutes before opening them. Powders have an endless shelf life unless exposed to moisture. So please keep them dry!
Clean Up: Wash hands with warm water and soap to remove any reside powders. To remove from surfaces, vinegar and water is the best method and if you want to remove it from a project piece the area will need to be sanded as it will make a permanent bond with the paint/materials.
