Transfer leaf is useful for gilding large surface areas, such as walls or a large piece of furniture. It is very lightly adhered to a tissue making it possible to pick up and apply the leaf easily with the tissue uppermost. Choose from Gold, Silver and Copper.
Our transfer leaf metal is available in books of 25 sheets, enough to cover around 0.49 meters squared (5.27 feet squared). Each sheet is 5.5 inches x 5.5 inches (140mm x 140mm).
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 aluminum. 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.
