Natural Pigments Aurum Copper Leaf
Aurum genuine pure, heavy copper leaf is produced using the latest technology and respected traditions of the Italian gold beating craft.
A book of loose copper leaf is assembled by placing each unit of copper leaf between sheets of thin rouged paper. The gilder can then remove one leaf at a time without disturbing the remaining leaves. It is removed from the book with a gilder's tip, a flat natural hair brush.
Our composition leaf is made in the standard European size of 140 x 140 mm (5.5 x 5.5 inches) and is available in units called "books," each book containing 25 leaves. For volume discounts order one or more boxes of composition leaf; each box contains 20 books or 500 leaves and covers 105 sq. ft. without waste or overlap. The percentage of waste is based on the complexity of the object and the gilder's expertise in laying leaf. If the surface is very ornate with deep crevices it will take more leaf than the same size area of a flat surface.
Box of 20 books, each book contains 25 leaves, 500 leaves total.
