The Dux Quick Dry will reach tack in approx. 1 hour and will remain open for gilding for 1.5 to 2.5 hours, depending on your current humidity and temperature. The LeFranc oil size will reach tack in approx. 1.3 hour and will remain open for gilding for 2 to 2.5 hours, depending on your current humidity and temperature. In very dry and warm environments, it may reach tack in as little as 45 mins. and the open time for gilding may be greatly reduced. Allow to cure for 24 hours before sealing.

Dux Slow-Set Size is recommended for projects that may require a longer open time for gilding than Quick-Dry will allow. It will reach proper gilding tack in 10-12 hours and will remain open for gilding with genuine or metal leaf for an equal amount of time. The open time for gilding with metal leaf is usually less, as it is with other oil sizes. Allow to cure minimum of one week before sealing.
LeFranc Quick-Dry Size is suitable for interior and exterior work. It reaches tack in 3 hours depending on film thickness, temperature and humidity. After reaching the proper gilding tack, it will remain open for gilding with genuine gold leaf for 3-4 hours. The open time for gilding with metal leaf is shorter, since metal leaf is brittle and heavier. Allow the gilded surface to cure one week before sealing or glazing. Always stir LeFranc size. The driers in LeFranc size settle to the bottom of the container and must be stirred to produce a blended product.
LeFranc Slow-Set Size Le Franc is suitable for all projects requiring a longer open time for gilding. It reaches tack in 12-14 hours and will remain open for gilding for 8-12 hours. LeFranc 12 Hour Size requires one month to cure fully before sealing or glazing. Until fully cured, the gilding surface is fragile and should be protected from harm. Always stir LeFranc size. The driers in LeFranc size settle to the bottom of the container and must be stirred to produce a blended product. Lead Free - new improved formulation! Released Fall 2007
