Agate Stone Burnishers

Agate stone Burnishers for Traditional Water Gilding.

Agate and Hematite burnishers are the ideal tool to create the mirror shine finish in the Traditional Water Gilding method.

Aggressively rubbing over the gold leaf (burnishing) causes the clay bole substrate to compress, creating a mirror shine to yur leafed surface.

The GildedPlanet offers a complete line of agate polishing stones with metal ferrules and wood handles. Over 75 different profiles are available which include some rare and unusual shapes. The drawings are actual scale renderings of the complete line of agate burnishers. Custom agates can be special ordered.
