Agate Burnishers


Agate burnishgers are used for polishing, gold, silver or other leaf, on picture frames, artwork, icons, or other items that have been water gilded (using gesso and clay bole).


After gold or silver leaf has been gilded to the picture frame, icon or other item being water gilded, a burnisher is gently rubbed over the surface of the gold or other leaf, polishing and brightening the area.  The shaped and highly polished agates are set in wooden handles and secured with a chrome plated ferrule.  Made in Germany.
