Did you know? Brass leaf is often labeled by other manufacturers as "Gold," referring to its yellow color; Rio's brass leaf is equivalent to the "gold-leaf' offered by those manufacturers. The fragile, ultra-thin patent leaf sheet is used to add contrasting accents to metal jewelry pieces. Because this material is so fragile, it must be applied directly from its protective paper backing to the jewelry piece where it is needed. The target area on the piece is first painted with an adhesive, then the leaf is pressed to the area and the paper lifted away, leaving the metal leaf in place.
Each individual package contains 25 sheets backed with protective paper to prevent crumbling or other damage. Use Gold-Size Quick Drying Varnish or a similar adhesive to apply leaf to your metal jewelry pieces.
