Liquid Gesso for Raised Illumination

 

Liquid Gesso

This slaked Plaster of Paris liquid gesso is used for raised illumination and calligraphy. It is based on a 14th Century formula. This gesso is unique in that it can be polished with an agate or hematite burnisher before applying gold leaf, resulting in a smoother and shinier surface. After the gold has been applied and set, the gilded surface can also be burnished to increase its shine.


Drying time averages about two hours depending on how much gesso is applied, the temperature and humidity. Additional layers will greatly increase the height of the raised gold. Additional layers can be added after 15-30 minutes, but before the previous layer dries.

Not recommended for use with silver, copper, imitation or variegated leaf.
