Copper leaf is a metal leaf made from pure copper leaf that has been hammered into incredibly fine sheets for use in gilding. This metal leaf is manufactured in Italy to the highest standards.
This product is supplied as loose leaf in booklets of 25. Each leaf in the book is separated by sheets of rouge paper, but is not adhered to it.
In order to remove the leaf from the book we recommend you use a brush such as a gilders tip to pick up the leaf although it can be handled if done so delicately and with clean, grease-free fingers.
Loose leaf is suitable for gilding any surface, but is mostly used for more intricate and delicate work where transfer leaf is unsuitable.
