Use Liberon Gesso, a ready to use, traditional preparation, as a surface coating prior to gilding for repairing gilt frames or to glue broken pieces of old gesso or plaster and then fill any missing parts. Liberon Gesso will also seal surfaces prior to gold or metal leafing.
Preparation: Heat using a 'Bain Marie' until the Gesso becomes warm and fluid.
Application: Apply successive coats with a brush until required level is reached. Each coat can be applied as soon as the previous one is cold. After a few hours the Gesso will set hard and can then be smoothed carefully with a very fine abrasive. When using the Gesso with metal leaf wet the Gesso to reactive its adhesive properties prior to laying the metal leaf.
Liberon Gesso is available in White and 250ml size.
