  1. Dinah , im having a glass sculpture gilded. What would you recommend to wrap the sculpture in after its completely gilded and sealed as it needs to be shipped interstate. Im concerned if it is wrapped in cotton , (then bubble wrap and filled with foam peanuts) ,the cotton fibres might be pressed and get stuck in gild or worse still pull a bit og gild off?
    Is there a non stick paper one could wrap it to protect the gild

      Hi Ash! Once it’s gilded and sealed, it should be fine. It will feel smooth to the touch, and if done correctly, should not rub or peal off.
