Although colored base grounds were sometimes used, the majority of Georgian period pieces had a black base color. The ground color is a black tar varnish made with a combination of oils. Gold leaf was used most frequently in decoration Georgian papier-mâché. The method of gold leaf was to first pencil trace a design onto an object, then paint over the design with an adhering paste. Before the paste dried completely, the gold leaf was pressed on and was set aside for several days to harden. The gold leaf that did not adhere was polished off, with the positive design remaiing. To be successful this process required the delicate sensitivity of a skilled craftsman.
