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.
16ct green gold leaf will require sealing as it will tarnish if left unsealed. We highly recommend Robersons Universal Lacquer as the most widely used and highly respected protective lacquer for metal leaf.
