Instacoll System High Gloss
Kölner’s unique Instacoll System is an innovative way of gilding, using modern water-based materials to create high gloss gilded surfaces that rival burnished gold in its brilliance. Instacoll can be used indoors and outdoors, and has been used on prestigious monuments since the 90’s and has a proven track record of longevity outdoors. The system is versatile and can be used on nearly any substrate, so long as it has been properly prepared - it can even be used on glass!
Kölner Instacoll is a water-based two-part system consisting of Instacoll Base Size and Instacoll Activator. The base is available in either Yellow or Clear. The basic process involves applying Instacoll Base Size where you want to apply the leaf, allowing to dry and then reactivating with Instacoll Activator, allowing the Activator to dry and then applying the leaf. This will create a highly-burnished surface without the need for agate burnishing!
