Series 1 Variegated Leaf - Transfer

Variegated leaf is a metal leaf that has been heat-treated, chemically-treated or both to develop dazzling patinas and unique discolorations. This metal leaf is manufactured in Italy to the highest standards.

Due to the various treatments the metal leaf has undergone to develop their patterns and colours each face of the leaf may have a different appearance. This product is supplied as transfer leaf and when laid correctly you will have a finish similar to the following images. The leaf, however, may appear different in the book but this is only the reverse of the leaf which will be hidden after gilding.

The images below are representative only, due to the chemical nature of the processes there may be variations in patterns and colouration between manufactured batches.

Please Note: Variegated leaf will tarnish over time and may need protecting with a varnish. However, some varnishes may alter the appearance of the colours of the leaf. We advise doing a test area first of all before carrying out any project.
