Welcome to dickblick
Let the glowing metallic or vivid jewel-like tones of these innovative, decorative, non-tarnishing pastes transform picture frames, furniture, metalwork, artwork, molding, ceramics, textiles, or almost any clean, dry surface. Baroque Art Gilders Paste is made of highly concentrated metallic and organic pigments blended with a wax base. It can be used both indoors and outdoors with little or no surface preparation.
Colors are ready to apply with brushes, sponges, cloth, or other tools. There is no dripping, so masking is not required. Each 3.11 oz (92 ml) tin covers more than 100 square feet (approximately 10 square meters).
Treated surfaces dry to the touch in 30 to 60 minutes. Allow 12 hours before installing or polishing. Once dry, surfaces are durable and water repellent. Clean up with paint thinner or mineral spirits.
Caution — Use in a well ventilated area. Avoid breathing vapors. Avoid prolonged contact with skin. Follow safety instructions carefully. Not suitable for use by children.
Color Chart Note — Use this color chart as an approximation of the real color. If exact color matching is necessary, use actual samples of the materials.
™ Baroque Art is a trademark.
Baroque Art Gilders Paste is perfect for highlighting details. Surfaces can be polished for a gilded appearance, or left as is for an attractive matte effect.
Colors can be layered, or mixed to create custom shades. Sixteen colors are available.

Not as workable
from Frederick, MD
Comments about Baroque Art Gilders Paste:
I make my own frames and use paint , Black, silver, gold to finish them so I wanted to see if this product would improve the look my work. I did order 4 cans, all of them were solid hard, adding thinner to reconstruct them makes them transparent. The gold is so hard it is unusable, adding thinner makes it brown. Silver is the only one that is OK. It would be better if the cans had extra seals? Not for everyone.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Fix your imprefect frames
from clinton township, Mi
The Blick plein air frames are not up to the quality we were all used to 5 years ago. this product has been a real headache saver to fix small imperfections, or even resurface entire frames that have an uneven finish. It is laborious, but a little goes a long way and keeps me in business as I cannot absorb the cost of high end frames. There is an excellent website that discusses how to use this product and how to reconstitute dried out product. Just google Baroque Guilders paste for all the info you will ever need. Also, Blick has the BEST price for this stuff. Now, will they ever resolve the quality issues with their frames...it is getting tiring, and on the verge of a solo show, I don't have time to screw around going back to get different frames which will probably be as uneven in quality. C'mon Blick, hear us and make it right without having to hassle customer service.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Excellent Product and Customer Service
By Barbara T.

The Gilder's Paste is one of the most creative ways to color our metal sculpture pieces. It's easy to use and creates amazing results. I highly recommend it for your art projects.The service we received, as always, was excellent and the fair cost of shipping sealed the deal for us. Blick's can't be beat!

Excellent coloring medium for use on a multitude of surfaces. Layer the colors or use just one color. It can be permanently sealed. Blick prices are competitive and the larger pots are the better deal. This product will become dry and brittle so protect your investment by adding mineral spirits to each pot and then recap. There is a learning curve with these pastes but there is so much information out on the web so do your homework. I use it to spruce up vintage items for resale or my original art.
from Pt. Jefferson, NY
As a wood turner/artist who turns art forms in wood, I am constantly on the search for new finishes which can be applied to wood. A colleague told me about this product and I am glad he did. Baroque Guider's Paste permits a wide variation in attractive finishes. Additionally it is a pleasant product to work with.
nice product with accurate description
from Los Angeles
The African Bronze has much more green in it than bronze, I'd have called it Greek Olive or Oxidated Copper or something to that effect. But the oil paints are super easy to work with and are beautiful once dried.
Baroque Art Gilders Paste! Top product
Use on wrought metals to expose natural textures. Also works well for faux finishing.

This is a wonderful product i have used it on handcast chess pieces, jewelry, metal,venise lace and much more. It is very easy to use and the finshes you can acheive are varied and beautiful. Some of the colours buff to just a sheen others like the pinotage or coral red have surprising metallic undertone once buffed. I highly reccommend it

I am a Blacksmith. Nothing beats Gilders Paste for adding color to your metal work. You just highlight your work or give it full color. A little dab goes a long way. Even with full color coverage the piece doesn't look overdone. It doesn't look like cheap spray painted store bought metal work. This will give your projects a very professional look.
