Welcome to dickblick
Charbonnel Gold Size is used for some of the most prestigious gilding jobs worldwide including the Statue of Liberty in New York and the Pantheon in Paris.
For fast and easy application on wood or plaster use the 3-hour gold size. The 12-hour gold size is lead free and allows for the most permanent gilding on wood, metal, and plaster. Both are oil-based and formulated to achieve the optimum brilliance and luster for gilding applications.
™ Charbonnel is a trademark.

This is the best gold size available.
from Austin, TX
I use this to gild icons. The window for tack is 12 hours+. The result is a more beautiful gilding job than the 3 hour one.

Be sure you have a clean and dust free environment because the size will pick up any dust, lint, etc. Do not shake the bottle or you will get bubbles in your size. To mix, turn it slowly about 20 times. We used a tiny dab of good quality red oil paint to give the size a slight tint. Otherwise it's difficult to see where you applied it if you can't see the shine. Do not apply gold too soon or your gold will dull. You'd be surprised how a little size goes a long way. Apply very thinly and evenly. This size stretches very well. We mix in the top of a plastic bottle and keep refilling when necessary. We've used many different types of leaf and all work beautifully. We test to see if ready with the back of a finger knuckle. Drag it a bit and listen for a slight squeak. The temperature of the room is key. We can often delay the 12 hours if necessary by gilding in a cold room or quicken by warming the room. There is flexibility in the window of time.
