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.
With gold leaf being so thin, its thickness is measured as the weight of the metal per thousand leaves. The standard gold leaf we supply is around 13 grams of metal per thousand leaves, and this is suitable for all gilding tasks. However, heavier weight leaves will give more lustrous and colourful finishes and will weather for longer outdoors but are more expensive due to the increased amount of gold. We offer a variety of weights to suit all projects and budgets.
Our gold leaf is available in booklets of 5 leaves and 25 leaves, standard booklet size is 80 x 80mm, but some larger sizes may be available. Please check the individual items for details on the dimensions!
22ct Latin usually will not tarnish in most interior decorative applications due to small percentage of silver in the alloy. If the surface is to be handled or touched then it will need protection. We recommend sealing it with a high-quality acrylic sealer, you can view our range of acrylic sealers here.
