S940. 23 K Gold Leaf (Patent) XXX
S940. 23K Gold Leaf (Patent) XXX
Book 25 sheets 3-3/8 "x 3-3/8"

This is a slightly thicker version of gold leaf. You might find that our standard gold leaf (S189) requires more than one layer of gold - but this gold is thicker and should cover in one layer. W&B brand.

Patent leaf comes adhered to a backing sheet. It is much easier to use than loose gold leaf, especially with Instacoll and similar products. It can be cut with scissors and then handled with tweezers. Both tweezers and scissors should be kept very clean.

Here are Rosemary Buczek's comments:
" I have been using W&B's gold, and I have come to prefer their XXX. I used double deep (XX) for years but switched to the triple to see what it was like. I will never go back to the double (XX)."



Your Price

S607. Real Silver Leaf

S738. Shell Gold Tablet
Powdered gold with a gum arabic binder. 23.75 carat. Comes in a transparent plastic container with a lid. Close lid after use. Use with a brush or pen to add real gold decoration to manuscripts, scrolls and calligraphic works. Shell gold can complement areas of gold leaf or it can be used alone.

We have discontinued the larger sizes because they did not offer any cost savings. Our small shell gold is approximately 7.5mm diameter x 4mm thick. However, size & weight varies slightly depending on the amount of residual water.

Shell gold prices are based on the worldwide gold market and may be different from what is printed in our catalog.



Options:
Your Price

S189-5. 5 sheets Patent Gold Leaf
5 sheets of 23k Patent Gold Leaf. Instead of investing in an entire book of leaf, you can buy 5 sheets in this smaller pack.

This is requested for Valerie Weilmuenster's "Exploring Decorative Vines and Borders" at IAMPETH 2012.
