Glassine Paper, renowned for its exceptional quality, is an essential tool for artists, gilders, and conservators. This 25 lb. translucent and non-abrasive coated paper is specifically designed to protect gilding and painted surfaces from fibers and damage. The 10 sheets of 9 x 11 3/4 inch (22.5 x 30 cm) glassine paper, suitable for various artistic applications, are an ideal addition to your creative arsenal.

As a barrier paper, glassine paper excels in its ability to prevent fibers from sticking to the surface, ensuring that your artwork remains unblemished. Its neutral pH level ensures that it does not react with the surrounding environment, further safeguarding your art pieces. When used as a slip sheet for storing artwork, glassine paper provides a safe and reliable way to preserve your creations.

The versatility of this glassine paper is evident in its use during the gilding process. By placing a small square of the paper over the gilded area, you can easily identify any uneven areas or spots where the gold may not have adhered well. Through this process, you can repair any faults or irregularities, ensuring a flawless finish. The paper serves as an indicator, revealing any imperfections that may be hidden from the naked eye.

For optimal results, allow your gilding base to dry for at least a few hours before applying the gold leaf. This permits the leaf to securely adhere to the base, ensuring a durable bond. Waiting also allows the base to dry, preventing damage from the pressure applied during the burnishing process. Once the gilding area is dry, you can proceed with burnishing, using the glassine paper to detect any softness or tackiness in the gilding base.

As a testament to its exceptional quality, this glassine paper is specially selected by artists and conservators worldwide. By choosing this premium product, you can be assured of the highest standards of craftsmanship. The Rublev Colours brand, synonymous with excellence, guarantees that this glassine paper meets the stringent requirements of professional artists and artisans.

Ideal for a wide range of applications, including gilding, artwork storage, and surface protection, this glassine paper is an indispensable addition to your artistic toolkit. With its unparalleled quality and versatility, it is no wonder that artists, conservators, and gilders rely on this exceptional product to ensure their creative vision is brought to life.
