Top Coat Brush


Our Topcoat/Varnish brush. is handmade in Sweden and is a very high quality lightweight brush. This tool is mostly made with natural bristles but has a light blend of synthetic bristles to lessen the opportunities for brush strokes. A huge benefit of this brush is that it helps you not apply too much Clear Topcoat Sealer or Clear Finish (which many people do when using a fully synthetic brush). It also works well with any other oil based products or stains. Clean up is easy with soap and water.

Metallic Foil is the DIY version of gold leafing. Less messy and less expensive than true gold foil but very similar results, adding metallic glitz to any project. Our Metallic Foil is compressed mica powders fused to cellophane.
Metallic Foil is a 3-step process:
1. Apply Leaf and Foil Size to area you wish to add Metallic Foil. Wait approximately 30 minutes for size to turn clear and become tacky.
2. Lay Metallic Foil shiny side down on tacky size. Apply pressure to release mica powders to surface. Peel back cellophane and continue until desired results are achieved.
3. Seal with AE Clear Topcoat (for a duller finish) or AE Clear Finish (for a shinier finish). Sealing can be done immediately after foil is applied.
