An imitation silver leaf sold in booklets containing 25 loose leaves between sheets of thin grease proof paper. The aluminium leaf, which is also known as Schlag, 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 metal 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 is 0.49 m2 (5.29 sq feet)
Please note that orders for Metal Leaf cannot be cancelled or returned under Distance Selling Regulations because the fragile nature of metal leaf does not allow it to be reused.
