Composition gold leaf is available in a wide variety of sizes and weights. This particular size, 5 1/2" x 5 1/2", is a popular choice for gilding projects. Composition gold leaf is made of a mixture of metals, including gold, silver, and copper. It is thinner and more flexible than pure gold leaf, making it ideal for use on surfaces that are not perfectly smooth. Composition gold leaf can be applied with traditional gilding techniques, such as water gilding or oil gilding. It can also be used in combination with other finishes, such as paint or varnish. Composition gold leaf is a versatile product that can give any project a touch of luxury.
