Mineral Spirits for Gilder's Paste - 1oz Bottle
Mineral Spirits is what you used to thin out and reconstitute Gilders Paste if it becomes mostly dry. It also can be used to selectively remove and thin out treatments as well as to remove Gilders paste from your metal clay creations if you want to create a different look by changing colors or to correct small errors.
Simply apply a few drops and use the
Mini Palette Knife
or other scraping tool to work the mineral spirits into the paste until you get the ideal consistency for your needs.
The Mineral Spirits bottle has a built in dropper cap that allows for a controlled release of the mineral spirits. The
Mini Palette Knife
has tiny serrations to facilitate mixing.

Working with Gilders Paste:
Use a finger, sponge, toothbrush, paintbrush or cloth in a rubbing motion to produce a unique finish. Rough up your surface a bit for maximum adhesion.
Drying time varies depending on substrate and surface preparation, approximately 60 minutes to the touch on dry debris free surfaces and 12 hours for complete cure time. If polishing or burnishing is required allow 12 hours drying time.
Thin with paint thinner or mineral spirits for color washing, staining and painting.
Remove excess Gilders Paste from high areas using a dry cloth or one lightly dampened with paint thinner/mineral spirits.
Layer colors on top of one another or mixed to create different finishes or an endless color palette.
Further protect your work using a Krylon UV resistant spray.
