Product Information

23.75kt 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

Genuine, not imitation gold leaf

NOTE!! 23.75kt Gold has 23.75kt 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″).

    Consistent quality

  2. Ere

    Great gold leaves! They arrived safely and adhered beautifully on traditional gesso. I used them to make raised gilding on calfskin vellum for my most recent illumination project. A very good choice!

  3. TSL

    The gold leaf is easy to work with
    and looks very nice on my projects.
    Fast delivery was a plus! Thank you
    for offering gold leaf.

  4. Charles Kegley

    I knew that when I purchased these sheets that it would be a very fragile product to work with and it is, but stunning when applied to art.

  5. Rose D.

    I have used the product for years. for most people gold leaf sheets are hard to work with. I love the way they look on Art work.

  6. Greg

    As advertised

  7. Fishy Sagnella

    Takes some getting used to if you never applied leaf before. Extremely delicate.

  8. Leslie

    Very easy to work with and cheap enough to practice with.

    Used product for oil gilding onto ampersand museum quality board, in creation of Icons. It is a fine product and delivers a clean transfer and a superb finish.
