Genuine gold metal beaten incredibly finely to form gossamer thin sheets for gilding. This leaf is supplied as transfer leaf and each leaf of gold is pressed lightly to a piece of backing paper.
Our gold leaf is available in booklets of 5 leaves and 25 leaves and comes in three grades:
Standard: 'Standard' gold leaf contains the standard factory weight of gold.
Extra: 'Extra' gold leaf contains more gold per thousand leaves than Standard weight gold leaf.
Superior: 'Superior' leaf contains the most gold of all grades of gold leaf.
12ct leaf will tarnish over time and will need to be protected in order to maintain it's finish and appearance. For this we recommend Robersons Crystal Clear Shellac Varnish as a proven, high-quality protective topcoat formulated specifically for protecting metal leaf.
