Gold Leaf Genuine - Loose

Each book of gold or metal leaf contains 25 leaves that measure 80mm x80mm. 1 book of gold will cover an area of 0.16m² without waste or overlap. (The amount of waste can be determined by the gilder’s own level of expertise and will depend on the complexity of the surface being gilded.) The higher the gold content of a leaf the more resistant it will be to tarnishing. Gold Leaf of less than 22 carat should be protected the atmosphere with a lacquer.

Loose leaf gold will disintegrate if touched with a finger so is usually lifted using a gilder's tip (see our brushes section)
