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.
