Gold leaf loose
The gold leaves are placed in paper booklets, loosely inlaid in 25 compartments, one for each leaf. To cut the leaf, one may take it from the booklet with the gilding knife and place it on the gilding cushion or drop it directly from the booklet onto the gilding cushion. Then, pick up the leaf with the gilder's tip and place it onto the prepared surface.

Gold leaf patent
The individual gold leaves are pressed onto a tissue paper. One uses patent gold, also called tempest gold, when gilding outdoors. The tissue paper is larger than the gold leaf, thus it may be more easily handled. It is also possible to cut the patent leaves into desired shapes/forms with scissors. The leaves are placed onto the prepared surface (oil gilding = mixtion), and carefully rubbed with cotton wool. The tissue paper may then be removed as the gold leaf will adhere to the surface/object. For exterior gilding, we recommend 23,5 kt up to 24 kt gold leaf.
