"Pure gold in the paint" EPIFANES Boat Varnish GOLD SPECIAL contains a very high proportion of metallic, pure gold dust pigments. This gold varnish was developed for decorative stripes and engravings, ship names, and lettering on classic yachts, where traditionally the gold leaf was processed very elaborately. This EPIFANES boat varnish lets the gold dust shine in the precious metal quite typical shine and color tone and is much easier to process than gold leaf.
The base for this varnish is the same as all other EPIFANES boat varnishes. However, because of the heavy gold dust, the varnish must be stirred constantly during application. If the gold pigment is unevenly distributed, streaking may occur during varnishing. Therefore, 2 coats are recommended for the first application.
To avoid spreading the gold dust everywhere when sanding the surrounding surfaces, it is recommended to cover the gold varnish with a coat of EPIFANES Clear varnish.
