Brunswick Black

Alternatively known as Japan black, this quick-drying black lacquer with a high bitumen content was traditionally used as a metal finish. It dries quickly to a durable protective finish.

Alternatively, it used in reverse glass gilding as a 'backing up' paint. After the glass is gilded the backside of the gold is painted over with the Brunswick black to protect the gilt from damage.
