Kölner Squirrel Hair Gilders Tips


Kolner Squirrel Tips

The Kolner Premium Gilders Tips are made of 100%  squirrel hair, which allows you to easily see through the hairs so that you can place the gold or silver leaf where you want.

The tips are ideal for picking up and placing gold or precious leaf on the item being gilded.  They will not carry a static charge and will last for years.


Before use, it is best to apply a very thin coat of petroleum jelly on the back of your non-dominant hand and run the end of the tip lights across the back of your hand to pick up a minute amount of the jelly. The tip will then easily pick up the leaf and you can lay it where you want it to be.


The tips should be cleaned after each use, using a solvent appropriate for the adhesive that was used.  It is best dried by laying it on a clean flat surface to  retain its shape and make it ready for it’s next use.
