How to oil gild the inside of a bowl.


What do you need for oil gilding; oil size, transfer moon gold, cotton wool, soft burst
 Apply a single coat of oil gilding to the surface.
I normally used 12 hours sizes from Lefranc. Normally I apply at 6 or 7 at night and when I can in the morning to my workshop it is ready to gild.
If you are using transfer gold leaf take a sheet out of the booklet, place it face down onto the sized area and gently rub over the back of the backing paper with cotton wool to release the gold onto the surface.
