Daler-Rowney Goldfinger is an all-purpose, rub-on metallic paste available in five finishes. It can be used for anything from the restoration of antiques to gilding picture frames or for stencilling, plaster, clay or wood decoration, mouldings for imitation ormolu furniture, textiles, leather, plastics, model making and greeting cards. Easy to use, Goldfinger can simply be applied with a soft cloth or finger and after a short time can be buffed to a fine lustre. It produces a really professional finish with no signs of metallic particles or smears. For intricate work, Goldfinger can be thinned with white spirit or turpentine and used with a brush. To preserve the lustre, Goldfinger can be treated with Goldfinger Varnish. Daler-Rowney Goldfinger Varnish effectively protects the lustre of decorative metallic furniture and metallic picture frames. It is made of premium quality diacetone alcohol & ethanol which does not dry up easily and can be used for a long period of time.

Goldfinger can be used on a variety of surfaces in addition to wood however the drying behaviour will ultimately depend on the surface in question and its use in conjunction with Goldfinger Varnish may be required. We recommended small tests prior to commencing major projects.
