Imitation Gold leaf is sometimes referred to as ‘Dutch Gold’ and is made of brass. This metal will tarnish over time so apply a layer of Clear Chalk Paint® Wax over your gilded surface to protect it.
Imitation Silver leaf is made of aluminium. To make it look like vintage silver, apply a light coat of Clear and Dark Chalk Paint® Wax.
Copper leaf is made from copper which tarnishes, so apply a layer of Clear Chalk Paint® Wax over your gilded surface to protect it.
