Description

Thicker and sturdier than gold leaf, this 23.5-karat yellow gold foil is easier to handle and is ideal for keum-boo, the centuries-old Korean art of gilding using heat and a burnisher to fuse very thin metal sheet to metal designs.

Each sheet is 23.5-karat (98% pure gold, 1.5% silver and 0.5% copper).


Specifications:
  • Country of origin : United Kingdom
  • Metal type : Gold
  • Form : Sheet
  • Dimensions : 3" x 3" (76.2 x 76.2mm)
  • Gauge/thickness : 0.000142" (0.0036mm)
  • Metal color : Yellow

Please Note:

• The small amount of copper in this foil poses no problems for enameling processes.
• The dimensions of this sheet will vary (sheets are approximately 3" to 3-1/2" square); thickness also will vary and is extremely difficult to measure precisely (sheets are approximately .000142" thick).

Your safety is important to us; therefore, we do not accept orders of fine gold for any purpose that includes ingesting, injecting, implanting or applying it topically.
