X-press It Gold Metal Leaf Flakes are imitation leaf, ideal for decorative projects, arts and crafts. The gold leaf flakes can be used on a variety of surfaces such as paper, wood, in resin or for clay projects. If using on clay use a varnish after baking.
Use with a water-based gilding size on the surface being decorated. Apply with size with a soft brush and allow to become tacky before laying the leaf flakes. For resin, metal leaf flakes can be applied directly onto the board or mixed into the resin prior to pouring depending on the desired effect.
