BRIGHT GOLD (From ITALY – 24% / 20 Karat Gold – a true Gold, Liquid form
The Bright Gold is a ONE COAT gold. It covers completely in one coat if the following directions are followed. It will fire a bright, but warm gold with a slight reddish tint which gives it much depth and is not a brassy color. You can apply this gold over white or painted china.
PURE GOLD is 24 Karats; our German Bright Gold is a 20 KARAT Gold which is why it covers so well.
Use a fine quality brush just for this gold – it must be new to start. Make sure it is dust and dirt free.
Let the gold flow off the tip of the brush. Overlap long strokes so there are no misses. The gold should flow together for a complete coverage. Do not apply heavy or go over after it has started to dry.
Let dry in a dust and dirt free storage place.
