Gilding size for mirror gloss gilding on china and ceramics. Formulated for repairing of small cracks of gilded china or ceramics. KT-5 / KT-5hv is a water based non burnishable size for transfer gold leaf. KT5-HV should be applied with a small spatula or surface knife. The metal shine is mirror like after polishing with Instacoll Tissue. KT5, KT5-HV can be intermixed and thinned with water.
Ceramic and Porcelain cavities can be refilled directly with kt5 or kt5 hv. The drying time depends on the thickness of application. Apply the gold leaf gently and press down on the transfer paper using an Instacoll Tissue or a wool brush.
