WHILE STOCKS LAST - No longer produced by the manufacturer.

Please note this gold is of SECOND quality, therefore it is not suitable for laying as whole leaves. This means many leaves may be split in one book (most commonly split through the middle) so please bear this in mind before purchasing.

Leaf weight: 14g (per 1000 leaves)

Available as loose leaf or transfer leaf. 

One booklet contains 25 gold leaves measuring 80 x 80mm. 

To cover an area of 1m² you will need 6.25 books without wastage or overlapping. 

The amount of waste is determined by the gilder’s own level of expertise and depends on the complexity of the surface being gilded. Areas that area highly carved and intricate will require significantly more leaf than those that are flat (usually double). Please bear this in mind when calculating the area.

The gold leaves contained in the transfer book are inter-leaved with waxed tissue paper, making them ideal for flat surfaces and exterior work. Transfer leaf is easier to handle than loose leaf and reduces wastage. 

It is recommended that for exterior work 23 carat or above is used to avoid tarnishing.

If you require any further information or advice, please call the shop before placing your order.
