Gilding Supplies - Shellac Size. This is the shellac size I use myself and
recommend you try, some people advocate the use of an oil based size, some prefer a water based size, I use
shellac as it is very easy to prepare and dries quickly, it can also be used to seal the leaf and imparts a
pleasing colour to the gold leaf.
Please note, we have not increased our prices since 2013, in the intervening years the price
of raw shellac has increased dramatically.
Red Ochre Pigment 30g
Used to provide a background colour prior to gilding. Mix with de-natured alcohol (methylated spirits) and apply
with a brush.
Quality Gold Leaf Supplies. Two Part Crackle Glaze.
In my opinion this two part fine crack crackle varnish is the easiest to get predictable results from.
Just make sure that work is not done in cold conditions, and that you apply thin coats.
Price per 50ml bottle of bottom coat and top coat. £18.99
Gilding supplies - Simple Scribe Gold Size. I developed this gold size (adhesive)
after using several of the acrylic based gold sizes. The problem they had in my opinion was that they called for
the user to apply the gold leaf "at the right time", what the right time was depended in part on your local
conditions, humidity etc.
The size I supply is ready when it is dry, simple as that. This is because this gold size dries sticky, a very
simple idea which has taken all the guesswork out of the gilding process.
This size is perfect for gilding onto paper and other flexible surfaces.
50 ml £15.60 includes shipping
Gilding supplies - 380g pack of gilders whiting.
Price £23.99 including shipping
50g of Fine grade pumice powder.

Gilding Supplies - 5g Pot of Antique Glaze.
The correct glaze to use with all the projects mentioned on this site. A little goes a long way.
Price £8.70 including shipping
Gilding Supplies - Imitation gold leaf is a vastly under rated material, I used it all the time in our
workshops for a variety of things. It comes in various shades, the one I sell
here is a very close match to 23 carat gold leaf in colour, it looks very convincing when used in place of
genuine gold leaf.
You can purchase it here from this site at prices lower than most places online and lower
than you would pay in a store.
