Product Information

23kt 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!! 23kt Gold has 23kt 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″).

  7. William H. Stoneman

    Wonderful to work with but….BOY….it is really expensive. Cost me $75.00 to complete two small sconces. I would save this for VERY important projects.

    If you’ve ever worked with pure gold leaf before you know how difficult it is to not ruin the sheet before you can actually use it.

    This gold is extremely thin. But it’s adhered to the surface of the paper in a way that allows you to handle the paper without destroying the gold.

    Others have complained that it’s held on too strong. I respectfully disagree. It’s about as perfect as possible. If you know what you’re doing it’s by far the easiest gold to transfer from the paper to your work.
    I’ve found that a top quantity genuine hair cosmetic fan brush to be the best way to lift off a section and then lay it on your piece.

    Sometimes I press the sheet directly onto my piece and it lifts off perfectly. If you can’t get it off then either your adhesive is very low quality, or you’re not pressing hard enough. I press and give a gentle rub on the paper backing with my thumb. I rarely if ever get “tags”.

    I’ve used nearly a hundred pieces so far and love working with it.

    It also mixes well with gum Arabic to make gold paint.
