Welcome to Gold Leaf Signs and Art

Gold Leaf Signs Information is created to inform you how to get that look of lasting elegance and learn more about this amazing technique. Gold Leaf Sign making has been noted as the aristocracy of the sign profession for ages. There is no other metal that has the lasting and tarnish proof finish of 24K Gold. Gold leaf is pounded down to app. 3.5 millionths of an inch in thickness, and is so thin you can see through it. This way many square feet of metal surface can be created from just an ounce of gold. Gold leaf is resistant to most kinds of weather, and outlasts virtually any painted surfaces. Gold is the most tarnish resistant metal known to mankind.

Gold Leaf comes in numerous karat weights to give different hues, with many ways it can be applied for striking originality. Basic weights are 24K, 23.75K, 23K, 22K Gold Leaf, 18K Lemon Gold Leaf, 16K Pale Gold Leaf, 12K / 10K White Gold Leaf [alloyed with silver] plus 22K and 21K Moon Gold Leaf, alloyed to have an earthy metal gold look. These metal finishes have a deep psychological impact on humans when unique image is needed for success.
