To Apply Leaf: Carefully hold the leaf sheet from the corners and lay it over the sized surface, use a soft brush to smooth out the leaf. Cotton gloves will aid in handling leaves well.
Bluebird Leafing Glue is a non-toxic, water based gilding adhesive. The adhesion stays open where extended tack time is required, it dries to a translucent finish and cleans up in water. It can be used straight from the bottle with no dilution on porous and non porous surfaces, including: wood, plaster, plastic, glass, leather, and canvas. Proper tack will develop in 25 mins at normal humidity and it will stay open for 24 hrs.
