Opacity and glazing properties

The opacity of a pigmented colour is not only depending on the thickness of the colour application but also on the kind and concentration of the pigment as well as on the kind binder in the colour. all colours have been submitted to the same testing method: satndardized application on black and white striped saturated base. this allows a classification with the following 4 symbols:

  Opaque  Semi-opaque   Semi-transparent   Transparent

Lightfasteness

This describes the durability of a colour in daylight. A number of influencing factors play a role too, like intensity of sunlight, temperature, moisture, oxygen or gas content of the air.

Color Index and Pigments names

The Color Index system is an international standard to denominate dyes and pigments. A combination of letters and numbers indicate the colour category. For example: PO 20, means Pigment Orange 20. Color Index names are: PW (Pigment White) / PY (Pigment Yellow) / PO (Pigment Orange) / PR (Pigment Red) / PV (Pigment Violet) / PB (Pigment Blue) / PG (Pigment Green) / PBr (Pigment Brown) / PBk (Pigment Black).

Renesans for Gilding and Conservation offers an extensive range of means, tools, and high-class dedicated materials. The gilding process sees covering a surface with a metal layer imitating gold. The aim of gilding is to provide the decorated objects with the noble appearance, splendour, and values of gold at a considerably lower price. Gilding materials include gold, silver, bronze, tin, zinc, aluminium, or metal alloys (so-called schlagmetal), applied with various techniques as leaf, power, paste, or paint.

There are two basic ways of gold leaf gilding: pulment gilding and mixtion gilding. Pulment, or bolus, is an adhesive, which is polished and used to apply leaf layers by moistening the base with a layer of alcohol. Gilding on mixtion, which is a specially prepared oily varnish, sees adhesion of gold leafs in a way that their edges barely overlap and subsequent polishing of the gilded surface with specially framed precious stones.

We recommend the GOLDPASTA gilding pastes for retouch, gilding, and conservation.
