Metal Leaf Adhesive Size Thin Liquid Glue for Metal Leafing Gilding 2oz Mona Lisa Speedball Brand

Kimberly Crick


This glue typically dries within 10 -30 minutes depending on the thickness of application. Apply with a paint brush, wash brush while still wet. Once glue is dry and clear, press your foil transfer sheet, metal leaf or flakes onto the tacky surface. Remains tacky for several hours and up to several days in humid environments. You can also apply foils, glitter, mica powders, chalk pastel dust etc. while wet if detail precision is not required.

Ideal for picture frames, polymer clay and hard surfaces. This is a very thin liquid, which means it can absorb into very absorbant papers like watercolor paper. You may be able to use it best on paper if the paper is sealed first, such as clear acrylic medium, or by doing multiple layers of adhesive. Works with most semi-absorbant surfaces such as canvas or leather. However, it is made for non-porous surfaces where the thin glue can sit on the surface allowing for gilding fine details (like designs carved into a picture frame or a sculpture).
