Gold leafing - Awesome Gold Leafing

Gold leafing is a decorative technique that involves applying extremely thin sheets of gold (often referred to as “gold leaf”) to a surface. Gold leaf is made by hammering gold into thin sheets, which can be as thin as 1/250,000th of an inch.

The process of gold leafing typically involves first preparing the surface to be gilded by smoothing it out and applying a layer of adhesive called “size.” Once the size is dry, the gold leaf is carefully applied to the surface using a special brush or tool. The gold leaf is so delicate that it can easily tear or crumple, so great care must be taken during the application process.

Gold leafing has been used for centuries to decorate a wide variety of objects, from picture frames and furniture to religious artifacts and architecture. It is often used to create a luxurious and opulent look, and can be found in many styles of decor, from traditional to contemporary.
