This wax-based medium can be used to add non-fading color or a gilded finish to tons of materials, including brass stampings, ceramics, wood, polymer clay and resin. It can be applied as-is to clean, dry, oil-free surfaces with a cloth, cotton swab, sponge, your finger... or thin it with paint thinner to create a paste, paint, stain or wash. Smooth surfaces should be slightly roughened with fine grit sandpaper or steel wool before application.
Gilders Paste dries to the touch in 10-15 minutes and completely dries in 12 hours with no tacky residue. One tin of Gilders Paste covers over 30 square feet of surface area (so a huge number of little charms in one 1.5 ounce tin).
The samples shown in photos above are just metalized plastic embellishments(!), spruced up by a tiny bit of Gilders Paste. Also note how beautiful the dark patina pieces below look with a bit of Gilders Paste.
