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:
Extra: 'Extra' gold leaf contains more gold per thousand leaves than Standard weight gold leaf.
Double: 'Double' gold leaf is almost double the thickness of Regular gold 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.
