Gesso and bole is the base usually prepared for water gilding; the technique is centuries old. It uses six to eight layers of gesso, and then three to four layers of bole, a mixture of natural earth pigments and gelatin glue. Applied whilst warm, each layer of the gesso and bole are finely sanded, and then the last layer of bole is burnished.
Due to the complex nature of silvering convex glass there may be a few small specks on the mirror.
