Loose leaf is more affordable than transfer and is perfect for most gilding purposes. It’s particularly good for carved surfaces. Choose from Gold, Silver and Copper.
Metal Loose Leaf

Our loose leaf metal is available in books of 25 sheets, enough to cover around 0.49 metres squared (5.27 feet squared). Each sheet is 5.5 inches x 5.5 inches (140mm x 140mm).
Use the leaf with hands lightly dusted with talcum powder and stick the leaf on to a surface coated with Annie Sloan Gold Size.
Imitation Gold leaf is sometimes referred to as ‘Dutch Gold’ and is made of brass. This metal will tarnish over time so apply a layer of Clear Chalk Paint® Wax over your gilded surface to protect it.
Imitation Silver leaf is made of aluminium. To make it look like vintage silver, apply a light coat of Clear and Dark Chalk Paint® Wax.
Copper leaf is made from copper which tarnishes, so apply a layer of Clear Chalk Paint® Wax over your gilded surface to protect it.
