Marbled Silver Leaf

The process of creating pure coloured silver leaf involves taking genuine silver leaf and then dying and coating it with a plastic resin on both sides to create a vibrant leaf with the brightness of silver in a myriad of gorgeous, jewel-like colours.

This marbled silver range is treated with a spirit-based dye and the colouring is not as light-fast as the light resistant range. This is part of its intrinsic quality as it conveys the natural fading of materials. This leaf is also more supple than the light resistant leaf and tends to be less brittle.

Coloured silver leaf is most often used in artistic applications; it can be used in paintings or other artworks, for wall covers and for glass gilding.

The leaf is 109mm x 109mm and is supplied in packs of 100 loose leaves with each individual leaf separated by a sheet of tissue paper. Each 100 leaf pack will cover an area approximately 1m2.
