Materials for Illuminated Manuscripts

For those looking to create their own illuminated manuscripts or those who wish to incorporate gold leaf into a calligraphy project our range of materials has everything you need to adhere gold and silver leaf to paper.

The Improved Gold Body is used to give height to the gilding and can be built up in layers for creating, for example, raised lettering.

The Gum Ammoniac, Water Gold Size and Ormoline Gilding Medium are sizes and are used to stick the leaf to the page. They have a range of properties as detailed on the product page, so whatever you need there should be a size to suit them!
