Genuine precious metal leaves, such as pure silver and gold leaf, are more expensive and delicate than other metal leaves (copper, fake gold, and variegated leaf).

Gold and silver leafing in painting are known as gilding. Gilding has been applied to an artwork since the 23rd century BC when Egyptians used gold foil leaves in tomb murals.

Gold leaf will offer an even more beautiful look that will endure longer than paint. Furthermore, while the initial cost may appear higher in comparison to cheaper "gold" paint works, the gold leaf will be less expensive in the long run due to its long lifespan and resistance to elements such as sunlight and water.

Gold leaf paint is typically made by mixing gold leaf flakes or powders with a binding agent, such as gum arabic or acrylic medium, to create a paste-like consistency. This mixture is then applied to a surface with a brush or other tool and left to dry, resulting in a shiny, metallic finish.

Yes, gold leaf paint is generally waterproof once it has fully dried and cured. However, it's important to note that prolonged exposure to water or other harsh elements may eventually cause the paint to deteriorate or lose its shine over time.

Yes, it is possible to apply gold leaf to a canvas surface. But keep in mind that gold leaf will adhere to every portion of the canvas where you put glue, so keep that in mind as you brush it on.
