Product Description

22.00 karat French Pale Gold is 91.5% pure gold. Each book contains 25 lvs. Each leaf is 3 3/8" x 3 3/8" square. Approx. coverage is 1.7 sqft. We offer a ariety of gram weights to suit the needs of your specific project. Gram weight is determined by the weight of 1000 leaves of 3 3/8 inch square gold leaf. This relates more to 'density' of leaf rather than thickness. Each leaf is beaten to approx. 0.5 microns thick. Weather you purchase European gold leaf or chinese, the size (3 3/8" sqr) and thickness (0.5 microns) is standard. The wieght changes by the amount of gold content per leaf. So a Chinese 23 kt gold leaf weighs 14 grams per 1000 lvs, and is therefore less dense than an Italian gold leaf, weighing 16 grams. The European leaf will be firmer, is less likely to tear and may show less wrinlkling in the final product (depending on your gilding technique).

Loose Gold - A book of loose gold leaf is assembled by placing each piece of gold leaf between pieces of thin rouged paper. The gilder can then remove one leaf at a time without disturbing the remaining leaves. It is removed from the book with a gilder's tip, a flat natural hair brush.
