Gilding Supplies

There is an overwhelming array of leaf available from manufacturers from all over the world. While there are many economical options, the quality of leaf is often substandard. Sinopia focuses on a simple selection of top quality gold leaf. Sinopia only offers gold from manufacturers who are dedicated to maintaining the highest of production standards. For Sinopia, no job is too small or too large. We are happy to service the needs of smaller customers such framers or iconographers and we have the capacity to accommodate larger projects such as a ballroom ceiling.

*Surface leaf: loose leaves in a small booklet of wax paper. Requires a gilding tip for handling and is required for water gilding.

*Patent leaf: leaf is attached to a wax paper backing and packaged in a small booklet of waxpaper. This type of leaf does not require a gilding tip and ideal for outdoor gilding, but can not be utilized in water gilding.
