Precious metal leaves, such as gold and silver, are thinner than a human hair and are often too fragile to handle by hand. The delicate leaves will simply stick to skin, bound by oils and moisture and tear themselves to pieces.
The best way to correctly handle this leaf is through the use of a gilders tip, a specialised brush for picking up leaf. These brushes are charged by running them over skin or hair to pick up a little oil, then can be used to lift a leaf simply by touching the bristles to them.
Size: 2.5" wide
NB: Please note that these brushes are most suitable with PURE gold, copper and silver leaf as they are finer than sheets and leaves of metal leaf.
