Gold leaf

All karats 12k to 24k. Gold leaf comes in a variety of alloys, which include different metals to produce a diversity of colors.

Note: Only 23 through 24 karat gold may be used for interior or exterior surfaces. All others should be used for interior only and may require a protective coating to reduce oxidation.

Copper Leaf

Copper leaf  holds many possibilities because of its ability to accept chemical processes. Copper leaf finishes not only include the color copper, an array of patinas such as verdigris, vitriol, cyprian metal and many others are also possible.

Aluminum Leaf

Aluminum leaf is an excellent substitute for silver when patinas are not used or the cost factors of silver are prohibitive.  Although aluminum leaf does not tarnish, it does oxidize. Clear coatings are recommended.

Silver Leaf

Silver leaf is available in many different colors and patterns. It also accepts chemical oxidation to produce patinas of old and new. Patinas include argentum, phospher, galena, silver and other variations.

Imitation Gold Leaf

Imitation gold leaf, sometimes referred to as “Dutch metal” or composition leaf, is comprised of copper and zinc. It produces an appearance similar to that of gold leaf. Imitation gold is available in many colors and is an excellent leaf for patinas.

Note: Patinas are usually only suitable for furniture and small moldings.
