Gilding Pad (6 in. x 9 in.)- A thick leather-covered foam pad that is used as a surface on which to cut loose leaf. The suede, while being static free, has a texture that keeps the leaf from slipping while trimming, and the surface area of the suede is large enough for 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.
Gilding Pad fits on the left hand for right-handed gilding and includes leather straps for the fingers and thumb to give its user a firm grip.
The leather material may be Brown or Black–both are guaranteed to work as intended.
