*Prepare a paintbrush specifically for use of the Gold Paint.


It is recommended to have diluted Gold Paste with the medium.

Use undiluted paste and apply the Gold Paste on a matte surface. If you would like to apply Gold Paste on a polished silver surface, fire the silver piece in a kiln for 30 minutes at 700℃/1292°F to make a matte surface first and then apply.
**Thickness of the application needs to be less than 0.5mm thick per layer. If you use undiluted paste on a glass or thick glazed porcelain surface, the painted area may sink due to gold weight.
