Sepp Leaf Metal Leaf

Sepp Leaf Metal Leaf includes Composition Gold, as well as Aluminum (Imitation Silver, and Copper). This leaf is intended for indoor use only. Because the copper alloy in metal leaf will tarnish, all metal leaf should be sealed to prevent tarnishing, except for Aluminum. Aluminum may get a bit darker in color without a sealer, but will not tarnish. It is best to wear gloves when handling metal leaf to avoid leaving fingerprints and other residues that may cause it to discolor under the sealer. Cotton gilding gloves are recommended.


  • Sold in “books” of 25 sheets (5.5″ x 5.5″)
  • Available in Imitation Gold, Imitation Silver and Imitation Copper
  • Coverage = 5 square feet per “book”

Sepp Leaf gilding leaf comes in units called “packs”. Each pack contains 500 pieces of 5-1/2 inch x 5-1/2 inch leaves that covers 100 square feet without waste or overlap. Each pack is further divided into 20 “books” with each book containing 25 leaves separated by thin tissue paper. The percentage of wasted leaf is based on the complexity of the object as well as the gilder’s expertise in laying leaf. If the surface is very ornate with deep crevices it will take more leaf than the same size area or a flat surface.

We stock books of 25 leaves (5.5″ x 5.5″ loose sheets separated by tissue paper)

Bulk packages of 500 leaves are available by special order. Please contact us for more details.
