The ancient process of making metal leaf was difficult and time-consuming. Craftsmen would place a small piece of metal into what was called a goldbeaters skin. This skin was made from the outer membrane of a calfs intestine, which is transparent, elastic and will not rip or tear during the long hours of hammering required to create a piece of leaf. Today of course, the process is made far easier through the use of computerized beating machines. But even with modern equipment, the creation of metal leaf is tricky and very time-consuming. Though the core difficulty remains. Each piece of gold must be flattened, cut and flattened again. To create a final sheet of flattened material this may have to happen hundreds of thousands of times. This is why even today there are only a few manufacturers around the world who can produce high-quality metal leaf.

Traditionally, undercoatings have been applied for both form and function. Because leafing requires a non-porous surface, undercoating’s often act as a sealant. It also provides an additional color enhancement or tint to the applied leaf. Red Oxide was used as the traditional undercoating by master gilders because it brought out the brilliance of the gold leaf, and since leaf is thin, it was often burnished and sanded to let the undercoating show through. This technique is often referred to as Old World gilding.

Sealants are applied to metal leaf to protect its appearance. While pure gold leaf does not need to be sealed a sealant is usually applied to help insure that the leaf does not wear away over time. Composition and other leafs must be sealed to prevent oxidation and tarnishing. Often times it is desirable to tone down the leaf by applying a water-based glaze. If this effect is desired, it is important to seal the leaf before applying the glaze. Common sealants include urethanes and shellac, but there are some excellent water-based sealants available..
