Genuine, not imitation gold leaf

NOTE!! 22kt Gold has 22kt of Genuine Gold in the metal leaf. There are other metal leaves out on the market that are called “Goldleaf” because of their appearance, but they are in fact a copper zinc alloy, and have ZERO gold in them. The industrial term for these leaves is called imitation gold leaf, or composition leaf. These leaves are used for mass production of furniture and frames. However, they will oxidize and change color over time. You can test if they are composition leaf if you spray water or put vinegar on their raw surface (i.e. prior to putting on varnish or coatings).

Larger gold leaf sheets than typical

Please also note that our leaves are industrial class gold sheets. The sizes are almost 4 times as large as other gold leaf sheets  you see on the internet (usually their size is 1 3/4″ x 1 3/4″ but it is claimed to be approximately 2″ x 2″).

    Great leaf. Fast delivery.

  2. Irene

    Superb quality gold, great for leafing! While it is thin to work with as all fine metals, it gives a beautiful radiant gold color. Just be gentle and careful with the leafs and it works great.
