Description

Gilder's Paste is a wax/resin product with a high concentration of pigment, for adding colour to metal, wood, ceramic, resin and many other items. It behaves much like a wax or a polish. Apply with a finger or cloth, let dry - buff. It is not UV resistant, and should be coated with a clear coat if it is to be used outside extensively. It can be thinned with paint thinner. Great for creating an antique look or highlighting texture by making a stronger contrast. You can apply and polish off the high areas before it is completely dry, to add emphasis to textures. A little goes a long way - a tin of this will probably last you forever. Dries in 10 mins to the touch, 12 hours to fully dry. No tacky residue. Does not fade.

Don't worry if it dries up in the tin - it's still good. Add a few drops of paint thinner and let it sit.

Covers 30 square feet. Approx 1 oz.

Made in Japan.

Patina - Gilders Paste - Antique Gold (30 ml tin)


It's the Age of Patinas. Add interest, individualize your components, tweak the colours, display details into stronger relief. Excellent for the Steam Punk and Industrial Chic looks.

Gilder's Paste - an intensely-coloured wax paste - resistance to water and common chemical reagents - excellent for coloring and highlighting. Use on metals, cermics, epoxy clay, polymer clay, resin, etc. You may need to rough up the surface to give some tooth for the Gilder's paste to hang on to - i.e. the metal surface might be a little too slippery. Gilder's paste dries to the touch in about 10 - 15 mins, and hardens fully after 12 hours, when you can buff it to a shine. (If you put it on metal, and don't like the effect or think you have too much, I've had success with wiping it with Renaissance wax and immediately wiping both right off.)

You can also dilute it with a little paint thinner or turpentine, for better penetration into fine detail.

Gilder's Paste is not particularly UV resistant, so should be sprayed with a UV resistant clear coating to protect it for outside applications.

Should your paste harden over the years - because a little goes a long way - soften it with a little solvent like paint thinner.
