Not clear. Too viscous to use.
By John Ruggles

Comments about Old World Art Gold Leafing Mediums:
I have used this satin sealer for a long time in my painting practice. The most recent two bottles of 803 Satin Sealer I purchased several months ago were practically unusable for what I need. They were not in fact clear. The sealer is light yellow, and was so thick that it was extremely difficult to apply with brush. Within months the two containers, including the unopened one, both hardened to a solid. I will not purchase this product again.Horrible product, unless you're using it to cast the amber cane topper from Jurassic Park.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: We apologize for the issues you had with this sealer, and we'll be happy to rectify this with you. Please look for an email from a member of our Customer Care Team who will be in touch to assist you.

Gold Leaf: Sealing is essential
By Papa - The Harassed Achiever
from Kerrville, TX
Instructions say to make sure one applies a good seal coat over the gold leaf when done to prevent discoloration from oxidation effects. In many cases, brushing works well but in tight areas where a brush may Not cover the surfaces properly.... recommend using the Spray Sealer (proper ventalation required). Unfortunately, Blick Art Supplies, seems reluctant to offer this product, so one must seek elsewhere. Using both products should assure good coverage.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Terrible red base coat.
Just opened a bottle of the red base coat #801 that I bought last month and was greatly disappointed. The pigment clumped up together. Let the pictures talk for themselves.

This is the BEST product on the market for Gold Leafing! So glad you have it.
Always a Good Choice
By Mixed Media Artist

This sizing has never been a problem for me. It holds the leafing well and has a lone open time to work.
Blick Provided Great Service!
from San Francisco, CA
The Blick staff at the Van Ness store was very helpful and saw to it that the product was delivered to its store, at which I picked it up. The timeline was good and the product was in good shape. The handling fee to get it from the Market Street store to the Van Ness store was, however, a bit steep.
Just the best

After trying several brands of size for gold leaf, a friend recommended this brand. I am a gourd artist and want the best product for my work. Glad I tried this and of course,no one beats Blicks prices.

Happy with the product
By Friend of God
I have never done gold leafing and these products were excellent. The gold leaf on the other hand is a challenge. I am very pleased with the products. The were very reasonably priced. My only criticism is the high cost of shipping for such small and light products.

Materials availability better here
I bought gold leaf which was unavailable everywhere else I had tried. It was an acceptable price and I will buy again. Shipping was fast and well-packaged. A cheaper price may be available somewhere else, but when the item is back ordered, what good is that? I was happy on all counts with this purchase.
