Red Clay Bole for use in water gilding techniques. Red Clay Bole is considered the standard color for applying gold leaf. Gold Leaf is pounded to a one micron thickness and therefore the color beneath the gold reads through leaf. 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.

Red Gilding Bole Review
I bought it a few months ago, just to see what that was. After all, there are many bole-makers around, here and oversees. To my great joy, I found Sinopia's bole to my best liking. It is rich and creamy; it has a phenomenal covering power; it is very finely ground and very well mixed. I use it for icon backgrounds, and it takes very little to cover lots of surface. Sinopia's bole handles better than Selhamin, and looks definitely more "alive" than LeFranc. Congrats to Alex on formulating this bole! This bole is also very versatile. If you want it matte, just apply the bole, and after it dries, don't polish it with a cloth, and just gild on top of it. It will retain its slightly grainy surface and will look like the background of a 15-century Byzantine icon, a soft and quiet glow. If you want it somewhat more reflective but not too much, just polish it with some rough fabric but don't burnish. But if you want a mirror-like surface, it burnishes really well. The color is also very beautiful; it harmonizes well with 22 karat.
