Ribbon leaf is a term used to refer to rolls of white rosin paper that have individual squares of genuine or metal leaf place one after another. Each leaf is laid in sequence in a continuous length of 5 meter, 20 meter, 50 meter and 75 meter, depending on type of leaf.
Ribbon Gold Leaf is manufactured by placing 4 1/8" square leaves onto a continuous length of waxed paper with a 2mm overlap. The rolled paper and the cardboard core are equal in width and the gold leaf is placed inside the edge of the paper. Ribbon Leaf can be trimmed to any size required. When trimmed, the gold leaf and paper are cut to produce a clean edge of gold and paper of the exact width.
Ribbon Metal Leaf is manufactured by placing 6 1/4" square leaves onto a continuous length of waxed paper with a 2mm overlap. Each leaf is 6 1/4" x 6 1/4" on a continuous roll of 5, 50 or 75 meter lengths. Approx. coverage for 50 meter is 82 sqft and the 75 meter roll is 123 sqft.
