Standard Copper Rolls
Standard Copper Leaf is available on rolls. There is 50 metres on a roll and available in 1cm, 1.5cm, 2cm, 2.5cm, 3cm, 4cm, 4.5cm, 5cm and 15cm widths. The Copper Leaf on a roll is produced by leaves of copper placed on a continuous sheet of rouged tissue paper with a 2mm overlay. This is then rolled around a cardboard core and cut to the required width. This product is especially suited for gilding flat surfaces that are generally even and long lines of gilding. This is applied by putting a thin layer of gold size onto the surface and once of a dry tack similar to the tack of a post-it note the roll of Copper leaf is then ready to be applied. Copper will verdigris and eventually go green and so is only suitable for interior use and will need protecting with a universal lacquer or varnish.
