AGATE BURNISHER STRAIGHT
Agate burnishers are tools used to impart a mirror-like polish to gold and other metal leaf.
This burnisher is made of the finest super smooth agate and is set in a comfortable bamboo handle. Used by gilder's the world over.
Agate is a smooth hard stone and it is the perfect material for burnishing gold and silver leaf. When handled with care, an agate burnisher will last a lifetime.
Agate burnisher's are relatively delicate tools and can chip easily if handled roughly; they may be kept smooth and in good condition by rubbing them on the flesh side of a piece of leather coated with whiting, or, if too rough to be smoothed in this manner, by rubbing them on a zinc-lined board coated with a small amount of flour or emery mixed with machine oil.
