Although it won't replace or match genuine gold leaf in brilliance, luster and longevity, this product can be used for interior projects that require the "look" of metallic gold at a fraction of the price. It is also infinitely easier to handle and apply than genuine gold leaf and thus can be tailored for children's projects (supervised, of course).
1. I'm a FIRST-TIME gold leaf applier.
2. I'm not very DIY-crafty.
3. I'm not very patient.
In order for me to try this, it needed to be fairly foolproof, or I knew I'd dropkick it out the window. Reading Amazon reviews didnt exactly fill me with confidence, so I read a bunch of crafty DIY blogs and hoped for the best.
How did it turn out? Well....it wasn't the best of times, it wasn't the worst of times. If we're being honest, it was kind of a pain in the ass, and I made a ton of mistakes, although the end result was more or less okay. Frankly, I would have pulled my hair out, but I really didn't have any free hands, since this stuff is so fiddly, and takes bomb-squad levels of concentration.
Here are some of my observations:
a) What's the "simple" part of this leaf? Well, each sheet comes on a square of waxpaper. You grasp the waxpaper, flip it over, and then kind of press the gold leaf on your surface. I guess the waxpaper is a groundbreaking innovation in the world of gold leaf.....
b) I knew the gold leaf was unbelievably thin, and would show every imperfection in the underlying surface, so I was worried about whether brushstrokes in the Speedball adhesive would show through. Turns out I didnt need to worry that much. The adhesive is quite thin (though it does get frothy quite easily) so as long as you apply it carefully, you won't see streaks.
c) You know how everyone says it'll make a mess, but you have no idea how much of a mess? Well, I'm still finding gold flakes all over the house weeks later. You have to burnish it down, so anything that doesnt come in contact with the adhesive just crumbles and flies away.Read more ›

Great Product, but its not gold...it's a bronze metal that looks like gold.Published 3 months ago by ROSE RN
Absolutely fantastic product. So much easier to apply that regular leafing and saves a ton because you can restick the foil multiple times on the same sheet.Published 3 months ago by Jodie Kleinbaum
I've never used a product like this before so I can't comment on its application but I'm commenting on there is no place in the description that says you also need adhesive. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Cia P.
