This delicate, ultra-thin 23-karat gold patent leaf sheet features a red-gold color and is ideal for adding contrasting accents to metal jewelry pieces or other craft projects. Because this material is so delicate, it must be applied directly from its protective paper backing to the piece where it is needed. To apply, first paint the target area on your piece with an adhesive, then press the leaf to the area and lift the paper away, leaving the metal leaf in place.
Each individual package contains 25 sheets backed with protective paper to prevent crumbling or other damage.
Ideal for high-end designs and for pieces that are not exposed to a great deal of daily wear and tear, high-karat gold materials are highly workable and deliver a signature color to designs.
• The dimensions of this sheet will vary (sheets are approximately 3" to 3-1/2" square).
• If you want to use leaf to create metallic accents on lampworked glass pieces, a technique called 'fuming' must be used. Please inquire at your local glass shops for information on performing this technique. Alternatively, you can choose a thin foil such as that made for keum-boo instead of metal leaf to create these accents.
