The Da Vinci Gilder Duster is an essential tool for oil gilding using gold, metallic, and silver leaf. After lifting the gold leaf off the gilder’s cushion with a gilder’s tip, the gilder attaches it to the properly prepared base by dusting it with this soft squirrel Gilder Duster.
The Da Vinci Gilder Duster is also used to dust away skewings from freshly gilded surfaces, and is ideally suited to higher karat (gold) leaf work.
The Da Vinci Gilder Duster can also be used as a watercolor mop.
