Also available are Gold Leaf types of our 23K, 23.75K Genuine Gold Leaf and 24K Pure Gold Leaf.

Loose Gold & Silver Leaf:
The leaves are placed in individual paper, one for each leaf.

Transfer (Patent) Gold Leaf:
The individual gold leaves are pressed onto a tissue paper. One uses patent gold, also called tempest gold, when gilding outdoors. The tissue paper is larger than the gold leaf, thus it may be more easily handled. It is also possible to cut the patent leaves into desired shapes/forms with scissors. The leaves are placed onto the prepared surface and carefully rubbed with cotton wool. The tissue paper may then be removed as the gold leaf will adhere to the surface/object. For exterior gilding, we recommend 23.75K up to 24K gold leaf.

– Dimensions: 40 x 40 mm, 80 x 80 mm.

The booklet contains 25 leaves and comes in packs of 20 booklets for a total of 500 leaves.

Leaves are available in different measurements and thicknesses depending on the coloration. They can be applied with water or oil gilding techniques. This product is ideal for restorations and worked surfaces.
