Metal Leafing - Gold Leaf and Variegated Metal Leaf for Gourds and Other Crafts
Metal leafing adds elegance to gourds, stamping, scrapbooking, greeting cards and other crafts.
Mona Lisa metal leafing is available in gold and striking variegated colors to create vibrant effects. Use with the heat-activated glue or for small, detail areas try the Zig embossing pen, both can be found below.
It's always been my goal to try to offer the best quality and variety as well as very competitive pricing on everything I sell and I hope you enjoy using these products as much as I do.

Metal leaf is easy to use and can enhance any project.
NOTE: It is recommended to use a sealer on metal leaf to help prevent oxidation, tarnishing or deteriorating from handling. You can seal with acrylic sprays, such as clear Americana Finishes Spray or a traditional shellac finish which is a favorite of my husband. It is always a good idea to seal any leafed project with a minimum of two coats of sealer or varnish. Spray sealers such as Krylon clear coat will maintain more of the leaf original brilliance and color. Brush on sealers will deepen the color of the leaf. For a decorative object that will not be handled much, like a picture frame, the spray sealer is the best choice. For an object that might be handled frequently or be subject to extra wear, the brush-on sealer will give more protection. It's always best to experiment with sealers on a sample before using it on a good piece of art.
