Is this PVA appropriate to use to stick gold leafing onto canvas painted with oil paints? For a mix media technique? 

Asked by: Jelka
PVA should not be used for gold leafing. Metal leaf adhesive should be used to adhere the gold leaf to your canvas. If you type item number V18246 into our search key word box you will see the Mona Lisa gold leaf adhesive that we carry. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.
