Working with gold leaf is such a joy and can add a whole new element of expression to an artwork. Many people have asked for supplies and instructions so I have put together a small sample kit which includes all you need to have a go at this centuries old tradition.

This is good quality composition gold comprising of copper and zinc and made in the traditional way by beating the metals into a very fine leaf so that it may be applied to paper and other porous materials. The silver is 100% aluminium and the copper is 100% copper. The gold size is a very good quality Australian made glue specifically designed for gilding work. It is washed up with water (and I recommend a mild soapy mix to clean your brush after application).
