Idea Oro Red Bole

$25.98 inc. GST


Thick and dense mixture composed of very fine clay and rabbit glue dissolved in water. Red Bole is the most commonly used tint in iconography. Red bole is used on the highlights of the moulding. It gives a rich lustre to the highlights, which are often burnished. The colour of the bole has an influence on gilding tone because it seeps through the leaf creating different glints. If the base has been prepared with Sizing, one coat of bole is sufficient where coverage is complete.

Dilute with hot water and apply warm after slight heating in a double boiler so it attains the right fluidity for use. Apply 2 or 3 coats if required. When the final layer is completely dry, smooth the surface with a rough cloth
