This gilding cushion for handling and cutting gold or metal foil has a soft black suede surface. 170 x 240mm on a 20mm thick pine base.
A gilding cushion is used to prepare gold foil for transfer to the object being gilded, which for us is the edge of a page set for a book. Use your gilders knife to cut the foil to its desired size and flatten it out ready for transfer to the book.
Depending on the size of the sheet to transfer, you can use a careful fingertip, or our gilding tip to place the sheet exactly where you want it.
The gilding cushion is supplied in a box so it can be kept perfectly clean in your workspace.
The gilding knife in the photo is for display only.
