Schlag Metal - Copper 0 Transfer - 25 Leaf Booklet


Schlag Metal - Copper 0 Transfer - 25 Leaf Booklet Ref: 7501/05

Copper leaf is a metal leaf made from pure copper leaf that has been hammered into incredibly fine sheets for use in gilding. This metal leaf is manufactured in Italy to the highest standards.

This product is supplied as transfer (or patent) leaf in booklets of 25; each leaf in the book has been pressed firmly to specially treated tissue paper that is separated by sheets of rouge paper. The leaf will stay adhered to it's backing paper when removed from the book making it suitable for outdoor work or any other situation where loose leaf would be unmanageable or at risk of blowing away. To apply the leaf it is pressed to the sized surface face down before peeling away the backing paper to leave the leaf on the surface. Transfer leaf is best suited for gilding flat areas.

Copper leaf will tarnish over time and requires sealing to protect it, especially if the leaf is to be used outdoors or if the gilding is to be touched or handled regularly. We supply a number of lacquers and varnish that are suited for protecting metal leaf; in particular we recommend Roberson's Universal Lacquer due to its hardwearing nature and ease of application.

Size: 140 mm x 140 mm (each booklet will cover approximately 0.65 m2)
Each booklet contains 25 leaves

Schlag Metal - Copper 0 Loose - 25 Leaf Booklet


Schlag Metal - Copper 0 Loose - 25 Leaf Booklet Ref: 7500/05

Copper leaf is a metal leaf made from pure copper leaf that has been hammered into incredibly fine sheets for use in gilding. This metal leaf is manufactured in Italy to the highest standards.

This product is supplied as loose leaf in booklets of 25; each leaf in the book is separated by sheets of rouge paper but is not adhered to it. In order to remove the leaf from the book we recommend you use a brush such as a gilders tip to pick up the leaf although it can be handled if done so delicately and with clean, grease-free fingers. Loose leaf is suitable for gilding any surface but is most often used for more intricate and delicate work where transfer leaf is unsuitable.

Copper leaf will tarnish over time and requires sealing to protect it, especially if the leaf is to be used outdoors or if the gilding is to be touched or handled regularly. We supply a number of lacquers and varnish that are suited for protecting metal leaf; in particular we recommend Roberson's Universal Lacquer due to its hardwearing nature and ease of application.
