Copper leafing - Awesome Gold Leafing

We are expert in Copper leafing

Copper leafing, also known as copper gilding or copper leafing, is a decorative technique that involves applying thin sheets of copper onto a surface to create a metallic finish. This technique has been used for centuries to add a touch of luxury and glamour to various objects, from furniture and picture frames to architectural details and art pieces.

The process of copper leafing typically involves applying a layer of adhesive, such as sizing or varnish, to the surface that will receive the copper leaf. Once the adhesive is tacky, the copper leaf is carefully applied to the surface using a brush or special tool. The excess copper leaf is then gently removed, leaving a smooth and shiny copper surface.

Copper leafing can be used on a variety of surfaces, including wood, metal, glass, and even paper. It can be left in its natural state or treated with patinas or other finishes to create different colors and textures. Copper leafing can also be combined with other decorative techniques, such as painting or stenciling, to create more complex designs.
