Kölner Instacoll gilding system is a water-based, gilding base and adhesive (size) designed for interior and exterior leaf work where weather resistance and high gloss are important. It can be used on nearly all substrates that have been prepared using standard accepted techniques to create weather-resistant surfaces. Do not use Instacoll directly on glass outdoors. For indoor gilding it is sufficient to have or to prepare a non-porous surface. Agate burnishing is not possible nor even necessary.
KöIner Instacoll gilding system consists of two components:
- Instacoll Base, available in yellow or clear
- Instacoll Activator
Instacoll Base (available in Clear and Yellow formulations) can be applied directly onto a non-porous surface without the necessity of preparing the surface with clay or bole. However, the surface should be very smooth, as irregularities in the surface will show through to the gilding. Once the Instacoll Base is completely dried, apply Instacoll Activator prior to gilding.
Prior to gilding Instacoll Activator needs to be a completely dry. After activating, the Instacoll surface is now prepared so that gold leaf will adhere well with a maximum burnish effect.
