Gilder's Tips are used to lift the loose leaves from the book and place it on the painting or picture frame. To use a gilder's tip, you first charge it with static electricity. Remember when you used to rub a balloon on your head and stick it to the wall. The same principle applies, you simply brush the tips of the hair on your own hair to charge it with static. Once charged, you quickly lift the the leaf from the book and place it on your painting or picture frame, being careful not to let the hair touch the sizing. Its important to note that there is an art to gilding, you have to be patience, it will take a while and a lot of leaf before you will become proficient at gilding.
