Bordeaux Red Clay Bole for use in water gilding
techniques. Gold Leaf is pounded to a one micron thickness and therefore
the color beneath the gold reads through leaf. Bordeaux Red Bole warms up yellow
gold and creates deep rich red voids between the leaf. Use over
traditional chalk gesso ground. Bole needs to be applied with a solution
of rabbit skin glue. This Bole is manufactured by Sinopia. The formula
was developed by working with master gilders to craft a rich creamy bole
that burnishes to a beautiful highly reflective luster.
