This shade of clay is a recreation of bright reddish orange shade of gilding bole known as Spanish Red. We were able to secure
some samples of this historical Clay Bole for testing and color
matching. This historical recreation of the Classic Spanish Re
possesses the same brilliant orange red shade that made this
clay color so emblematic. Bole Clay for use in water gilding techniques.
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.
