Idea Gilding Red Bole




Bole is a thick, dense mixture composed of very fine clay and rabbit glue dissolved in water. Red bole is the most commonly used tint in iconography. Red bole is used onthe highlights of the moulding. It gives a rich lustre to the highlights, which are often burnished.The colour of the bole has an influence on gilding tone because it seeps through the leaf creatingdifferent glints. If the base has been prepared with Sizing, one coat of bole is sufficient wherecoverage is complete. 125ml jar
