Gold leaf on rolls – the smart way to quickly gild lines and surfaces
Have you ever had narrow shapes of which you have needed to gild hundreds of metres? There are many situations where gold leaf on rolls makes the job of gilding considerably easier, as it is just like “transfer gold” in roll form. For this purpose, 205 sheets of gold leaf in 105 x 105 mm format are placed on a paper roll with a slight overlap. The finished roll is 21 m long and is known as the master roll. We cut the master roll to your desired width: from 10 mm to a maximum of 100 mm
Gold leaf rolls from a smaller format, tailored to your project
Do you plan to gild a large surface? Does your client want the leaf to be visible on the gilded surface? We can produce special rolls for you from smaller gold leaf formats such as 80 x 80 mm, 90 x 90 mm, or other sizes.
The smart way to work with gold leaf on rolls
Gold leaf on rolls should ideally be handled by two people. One person holds the paper over the object, while the other person lets it unroll by guiding it between their fingers and simultaneously pressing the gold onto the surface – which has been prepared with Mixtion or another medium. Hundreds of metres can be gilded in no time using gold leaf on rolls. Gilding aids for gold leaf on rolls that are available on the market are in most cases a hindrance and are inefficient for gilding. This is where true craftsmanship really pays off.
