(Transfer Gold Leaf:) The individual gold leaves are pressed onto a tissue paper. One uses patent gold, also called tempest gold, when gilding outdoors. The tissue paper is larger than the gold leaf, thus it may be more easily handled. It is also possible to cut the patent leaves into desired shapes/forms with scissors. The leaves are placed onto the prepared surface and carefully rubbed with cotton wool. The tissue paper may then be removed as the gold leaf will adhere to the surface/object.
(Loose Gold Leaf:) - Keep in mind that loose gold leaf, unlike patent (transfer) leaf, is NOT adhered to the wax paper it rests on, so outdoor use (mainly due to wind) is not recommended. - Since loose leaf is so fragile, a special tool (Gilder's Tip) is needed to safely lift the loose leaf from the wax paper.
