Preparation: Seal porous surfaces, such as woods and plaster, with Liberon Fontenay Base before applying Liberon Gilt Cream. Ensure surface is clean, dry and free from dust.

Application: Apply to the surface with a cotton cloth or small brush for intricate areas. Allow to dry for a minimum of 4 hours, longer if possible and either leave matte or buff to a shine. For a better finish we recommend applying several thin coats of Gilt Cream as oppose to one thick coat.
