The composition leaf offers a similar working experience and look to genuine metal leaf at a fraction of the cost. Composition leaf is an alloy material made from combination of metals, e.g., 86% copper:14% zinc. The gold looks like 14kt gold with similar brilliance. It is not as thin as pure gold leaf, it is easier to handle, but doesn’t burnish down quite as well as genuine gold. To avoid tarnishing over time, gold composition leaf should be sealed. Use cotton gloves and/or tweezers to handle and to minimize tarnishing prior to sealing. The silver leaf looks like silver and does not tarnish or discolour.
