Left-Handed users – Gilding Pad goes on the right hand


The L.A. Gold Leaf Gilding Pad, constructed on site, provides surface for gilders of all levels to slice gold leaf into smaller pieces.

The suede leather surface is static-free and has a texture that keeps gold leaf from slipping when sliced. With a surface area of 9 by 6 inches, the user can comfortably fit 2 full sheets of loose Genuine Gold Leaf or Genuine Silver Leaf. This tool is most commonly used in combination with a Gilder’s Tip for Water Gilding, which uses the static to lift the leaf from the Gilding Pad.

The underside of the Gilding Pad includes a leather strap for the hand and a smaller leather strap intended for the gilder’s knife.

The suede leather may come in Brown or Black, depending on materials on-hand. Both colors will work as intended.
