Product Information

23.5kt Genuine Gold leaf. The gold leaf is beaten mechanically by machines through thousands of repetitions, mauling it to a thin layer of gold.

Other uses of genuine gold leaf

Gold leaf is applied in interior design (decorating walls), exterior renovation such as domes in churches, figurines, furniture restorations, signage, signboards, photo frames, scrapbooking, and other craftwork.

Genuine, not imitation gold leaf

NOTE!! 23.5kt Gold has 23.5kt 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″).

    When I’ve worked with gold leaf in the past, they’ve always been large approx. 6×6 sheets, I thought they were something that’s a fairly standard size. Ordered these because the price was so much better than locally- Now I see why! It’s less than half the amount of leaf! The leaf itself looks to be good quality but bummed about the size, will need to purchase much more for my project.

    Update: I initially gave this item 2 stars for the reasons above. The seller took the time to message me to let me know that these sheets are the standard size for genuine gold and that it sounds like what I’ve been using is imitation gold leaf due to the size. He was right! where I’ve been purchasing locally has been selling me imitation as genuine – so frustrating! I appreciate that he took the time to educate me, otherwise I would have gone on buying imitation for an inflated price. He also shipped me a book of imitation leaf for free which was so generous and allowed me to finish my project. Will purchase from this seller again!

    I spent a lot of time carving this wooden nickle. This was my first attempt at gilding. I am very happy with the results. It does require patience.

    This is great for hand grinding into shell gold. It breaks up nicely and practically melts into whatever mucilage you decide to use. If you are interested in making shell gold for illumination or tezhip this is an excellent quality gold sheet to use. Do not try to use the cheap ones from Thailand chances are they will not be real gold and you will waste your time trying to hand grind them. It’s enough to make about 1 small pot of pigment.

    Excellent product & service. This is superior to the 23.5 K gold leaf I was buying at a major art supply store in Canada.
