Kolner Synthetic Gilders Tips


Kolner Synthetic Tips

Our Kolner synthetic Gilders Tips are ideal for picking up loose gold, silver, copper or imitation gold or silver leaf. The synthetic soft bristles are attached to a high quality card handle.

These gilders tips are ideal for picking up and placing gold or other precious leaf on your gilding project.  With normal use and cleaning they will last for years.


Like Squirrel Hair Tips, 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.
