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.
23.75ct 'Platin Gold' leaf is available in booklets of 25 leaves.
23.75ct Platin 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 Roberson Universal Lacquer for protecting interior gilding.
