  • 1 Booklet (25 sheets): 1 5/6 square feet (0.56 square meters)

Loose Gold & Silver Leaf:
Loose leaves come in paper booklets, loosely inlaid in 25 compartments, one for each leaf. To cut the leaf, one may take it from the booklet with the gilding knife and place it on the gilding cushion or drop it directly from the booklet onto the gilding cushion. Then, pick up the leaf with the gilder’s tip and place it onto the prepared surface.

Transfer (Patent) Gold & Silver Leaf:
The individual gold leaves are pressed onto a tissue paper. One uses patent gold, also called transfer 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. Place the leaves onto the prepared surface and carefully rub with cotton wool. Remove the tissue paper–the gold leaf will firmly adhere to the surface/object. For exterior gilding, we recommend 23.75K up to 24K gold leaf.
