Burnishers are gilding tools used polish gold and other metal leafs to a mirror-like finish. This burnisher features a polished genuine agate head and unfinished wooden handle. Perfect for burnishing gold leaf for illumination.
Agate chips easily, so we recommend handling this burnisher gently. Storage in a felt or cloth bag is best. Polish with a piece of silk before use and do not touch the agate head with your fingers, as the grease from your skin can affect its performance.
