Variegated Standard Leaf
Variegated Leaf is available in shade red and blue/green. The Variegated Red is a copper leaf that has been treated with chemicals and acids to produce a random coloured pattern on the leaf. The Variegated Blue/Green is a imitation gold leaf that has been treated in the same way. Variegated Leaf comes in booklets of 25 leaves, each leaf measuring 140mm x 140mm and is available in Loose Leaf and Transfer Leaf. Loose Leaf is where the leaves are placed between the pages of the booklet and Transfer Leaf is where the leaves are adhered to a piece of waxed tissue between the pages of the booklet. Both shades of variegated leaf are only for interior use only as they will both tarnish / verdigris and will both need sealing with a universal lacquer or varnish. The gilding process is the same of when using Genuine Gold Leaf, a gilding size is thinly applied to the surface and once a dry tack, like a tack of a post-it note, it is then ready to take the Leaf.
