Da Vinci’s Gilder’s tip 500 Series gilding brush is made with pure blue squirrel hair. The natural hair is placed in single thickness and held in green cardboard holders. This gilder’s brush is made for lifting and placing gold leaf. Gently rub the bristles on the back of your hand to gather static and the slight oil needed to lift the delicate sheets of gold leaf and apply them to the prepared surface.
Note: this brush is not used to apply size, only to apply leaf.
