Gold leaf: A Joy to Behold !
By Papa - The Harassed Achiever
from Kerrville, TX
Comments about Speedball Imitation Gold Leaf:
Gold leafing can be tricky, but with practice, one gets better with handling this delicate item..But the effort is well worth the cost, as well the trouble applying. I have used this product on canvas, hardboard and natural wood. The latter takes a great deal more due to its texture, but looks great when finished. And I really prefer the 'loose sheets' over the 'easy apply'. Recommend all try this effect at least once on some piece of art being worked on. Nice glow, even when lightly painted over.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Mona Lisa Gold Leaf Sheets
from Fort Lauderdale, FL
I use this product frequently. Simple to use and makes details in furniture fantastic
Great for adding that additional layer of pop to acrylic paintings, or for decorating frames and household objects. I find this one easy to work with and lay down.

Good choice for metal leaf
I looked and tried a different brand of gold imitation leaf, and it did not glisten like the Mona Lisa brand. Unless I switch to real gold, I won't be straying from the Mona Lisa product line.

We did a project with Illuminated letters. The kids loved using it and it was very easy to use. Another class is decorating "Red Envelopes" used for a Chinese New Year theme.
Great product, fantastic price!

Use in mixed media (with hand-made paper). Find it very suitable.

Leafing even simple picture frame profiles is a burdensome task due to the thinness of the product. It also makes it close to impossible to get a smooth unwrinkled finish. Avoid Speedballs metal leaf products and go online for studier versions.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I would previously buy this product in bulk and I used to love it. Now they have not only changed the packaging, but also the leaf itself is different and it is just atrocious. The leaf is so thin now that the static cling from the packaging alone damages it. I have worked with this product for years and had developed excellent methods for handling, but now it's just useless and product waste is inevitable. I keep scraps together, and you can see and feel the difference between the previous leaf, and the new, cheaper leaf.

I use it with the sealer and it makes it shine so brightly I'm very impressed.
This demonstration shows the basic technique of leafing with a composition gold leaf as well as the easy-to-use Simple Leaf from Mona Lisa. Both are wonderful for a wide variety of fine art and home applications.
