As well as precious metal leaf, Giusto Manetti Battiloro offers a series of imitation leaf products in 4 colours as well as a range of variegated effects, and in four formats. Thicker than genuine gold, imitation leaves are easier to handle and apply and can be used by the most expert professionals and trainees trying their hand at gilding for the first time. Imitation gold, silver and copper is available in larger formats than traditional gold leaf. This, together with its ease in handling makes for considerably reduced time frames for gilding. Once applied it is advisable to protect imitation gold leaf to extend its life and avoid tarnishing.
