If you have an interest in learning how to gild then this kit contains the essential items needed to complete your first gilding project and beyond! By using imitation silver leaf you are able to get a feel for working with metal leaf and gilding without the expense of using real silver leaf. Imitation silver leaf also has the advantage of not tarnishing, unlike real silver, making this a great alternative to using the real stuff for certain applications! This kit is also perfect for those seeking to add an eye catching decorative effect to a small project or object.
