Manetti 23 Karat Patent Gold Leaf is available in 3-3/8"x3-3/8" sheets referred to as leaves. Each pack contains 25 leaves. Patent Gold Leaf is lightly mounted on a thin sheet of tissue paper. The tissue allows you to lift each leaf of gold and transfer it to the area to be gilded. The tackiness of the gold size will pull the leaf off the tissue and secure it to your work. Patent Gold Leaf eliminates the need to use gilders tips and is ideal for applying leaf to flat surface areas. Patent Gold Leaf does not work well in textured surfaces. These surfaces are better suited to Glass Gold Leaf.
