Authentic gold leaf is created by hammering gold into very thin sheets which vary in gold content and weight. It is approximately 91.7% gold, equating to 22 karat. Gold has been a symbol of opulence from the beginning, with Greek ideology that by looking upon the gold sculptures, a viewer could better themselves.
The process of layering gold leaf over a surface is called gold leafing or gilding. In order to add the gold leaf to a surface it must first be prepared with a surface paint, then applied with adhesive followed by, burnishing, cleaning, pre-paint sealing, painting, and a final post-paint sealing. Ultimately, applying gold leaf is challenging and a lot of careful work is required in order to achieve the perfect painted gold leaf surface.
Throughout history, gold leaf has been used to portray many things. In the Medieval Era, halos of gold leaf were used in art to signify the heavenly or unearthly, much like your loved one who has left our world. Similarly, in 17th century Japan, gold leaf was used to evoke a celestial feeling towards the heavens.
