23ct Gold Leaf. Genuine gold leaf sold in booklets containing 25 loose leaves between sheets of thin rouged paper.
The leaf is lifted from the pages by by using a special brush called a Gilders Tip. The Gilders Tip is first brushed briefly across the side of the gilder’s face to build up a little grease or static so that the gold leaf attaches itself when it is gently touched with the brush hairs. The gold leaf can then be applied to the prepared surface directly from the Gilders Tip, or transferred to a Gilders Cushion where it can be cut to size with a Gilders Knife.
Coverage per book of 25 leaves: 0.16 m² (1.69 sq. feet). Coverage per
20 books: 3.2 m² (33.9 sq. feet). 12g per 1000 sheets
