Each book of gold leaf contains 25 leaves that measure 80mm x 80mm.
1 book of gold will cover an area of 0.16m² without waste or
overlap. (The amount of waste can be determined by the gilder’s
own level of expertise and will depend on the complexity of the
surface being gilded.) The higher the gold content of a leaf the
more resistant it will be to tarnishing. Gold Leaf of less than 22
carat should be protected from the atmosphere with a lacquer. Loose
leaf gold will disintegrate if touched with a finger so is usually
lifted using a gilder's tip (see our brushes section)Please note:
Manetti gold may be delivered in Handover card to protect the
sheets during transit.
