Genuine gold metal beaten incredibly finely to form gossamer thin sheets for gilding. This leaf is supplied as loose leaf with each leaf in the booklet sitting loosely between thin rouged paper sheets. Loose gold leaf is incredibly delicate and is too fine to be handled by hand, when working with loose leaf you must make use of a gilders tip in order to pick up the gold.
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.
- Regular: 'Regular' gold leaf contains more gold per thousand leaves than Standard weight gold leaf.
- Extra: 'Extra' gold leaf contains more gold per thousand leaves than Standard and Regular weight gold leaf.
- Double: Double is the heaviest weight of gold and contains about twice as much gold as a Standard leaf.
23.5ct gold should not tarnish in most usual decorative applications and should not need to be sealed except in cases where it may be handled or touched. In this case we recommend the use of products such as Kölner Leaf Protect for protecting interior gilding.
