INFORMATION

This leaf booklet contains 25 copper leaves measuring 140x140mm.

One book of copper 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 copper content of a leaf the more durable it will be. For outdoor work it is advisable to only gild using leaf that 23ct or higher to avoid tarnishing.

The copper leaves that are contained in the transfer booklet are held on tissue paper and are laid out in pages. This product is especially suited for gilding ceilings or outdoor surfaces.

Further transfer pressing is available. As a standard, transfer leaf comes loosely pressed – a loosely pressed leaf will come straight off the paper as soon as you stick any part of it to the gold size. A medium or hard-pressed leaf will only come off where you have pressed the leaf to the size, the rest of the leaf will stay on the paper to use again. The hard-pressed leaf is ideal when working on small letters and details, like honours boards, where the whole leaf coming off would result in a lot of wasted gold.

Please note: metal leaf pressed services cannot be returned or cancelled. Any leaf (gold or metal, etc) which is transfer leaf (rather than loose) can be pressed.
