Substrates must be dry, free of grease and dust.
First impregnate absorbent surfaces such as plaster and wood with Sealer 123a.
This impregnating agent is diluted with tap water in the ratio sealer: water 1:2 to 1:3.
When the sealer is dry, the Permacoll Size is applied in one layer with a soft-haired brush.
Surfaces that do not absorb, such as varnished wood or plastics, can be treated directly with Permacoll Size.
After a drying time of approximately 1 hour, any type of gold leaf can be applied.
Once applied the gold leaves are lightly rubbed with a dot of cotton wool.
Permacoll size is supplied in colorless, black and red.
The red Permacoll is extremely suitable for easily simulating a polished gilding.
