INFORMATION

The leaves in this booklet are worked for ten hours in five phases to transform them from a gold ingot form to leaves tenths of microns thick.

This leaf booklet contains 25 deep gold leaves measuring 80x80mm.

One 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 durable it will be. For outdoor work it is advisable to only gild using leaf that 23ct or higher to avoid tarnishing.

The gold 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.

This leaf is of glass gilding quality

Please note: Manetti gold/silver leaf may be delivered in Handover card to protect the sheets during transit.

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.
