The Kolner System is a unique and remarkable ready-to-use water gilding system for a wide variety of surfaces without the need of a underlying gesso base. The three components are a surface sealer, KOLNER 1223-A SEALER, the ready-to-use KOLNER BURNISHING CLAY and a gilder’s size made from COLNASOL GEL CONCENTRATE. No heating is required and the system can be applied and worked on over a period of several days.
A universal water-based sealer originally designed to prime and seal porous surfaces for the Kolner System. It can also be colored with mica powders and used as a base coat prior to oil gilding. As an overcoat, it will seal decorated surfaces. This concentrated synthetic sealer must be diluted prior to application and dries water resistant.
