Shell Gold

Shell Gold is pure 23.75K gold powder, which is suspended in gum arabic and then dried into tablet size watercolor style cakes.

Ideal for calligraphy, illumination and other painting techniques, as well as for retouching gold work on paintings, frames and gilded surfaces.

Similar to using watercolor tablets, Shell Gold is wetted with a brush and can then be painted into small detail areas. Shell Gold dissolves easily in water.
