Gilders Paste® is a wax-based medium to accent or color various backgrounds including wood, metal, baked polymer clay, ceramic, leather and more. Apply with finger (gloves recommended), brush, cloth or sponge to create a myriad of effects. Colors can be mixed or layered for an endless palette of designs.
Paste dries to the touch in 10-15 minutes with a recommended complete dry time of 12-24 hours. Once dry, polishing with a soft cloth will bring out a luster finish. Applying a water-based acrylic top coat is recommended. If desired, designers can thin out with paint thinner or mineral spirits to transform the highly concentrated paste to a preferred consistency. Use in a well-ventilated area. A little Gilders Paste® goes a long way, a 1-ounce tin covers over 30 feet--that's a lot of applications!
Colors may vary slightly.
Haven't used your Gilders Paste® in your most recent projects and wondering if it's gone dry? This wax paste has an endless shelf life. Just mix in a few drops of paint thinner, mineral spirits or turpentine. Place the drops in one area and add more paste or thinner as needed to produce the quantity or viscosity desired. Depending on the amount of time the paste has sat, this procedure can take 1-10 minutes. There is no need to try and mix up the whole tin at once since Gilders Paste® wax will go a very long way.
