Fast dry gold size

Is the water based fast dry gold leaf size as effective (and appropriate) on glass work as oil based size. I am thinking primarily of the durability of the product.

Robert...that's a really good question and I will be anxious to read what others say. Personally, I wouldn't use it and would opt for the tried and true oil sizes.
