The Gold Leaf Burnishing Pad is the brainchild of the renowned Chicago signwriter Robert W. Frese, also known as the Goldfather! It has been designed by him to be the superior method of burnishing gilded glass and oil-size gilding on any surface. It's black, micro-velvet surface gently removes loose gold leaf without scratching the gilded surface. The dark colour of the pad also makes the flaked leaf stand out on it so cleaning off the residue is a breeze!
After all the loose leaf has been removed it's time for the final burnish. Make sure the pad is clean as any skewings could scratch the leaf before pressing the pad to the gilt surface and gently burnishing it.
Each pad comes with an elasticated strap to hold it to your hand and, if maintained, should last for many years of gilding!
