What is gold leaf?

Gold leaf is created through a process known as goldbeating which involves hammering gold into an extremely thin, unbroken sheet. This gold leaf is used for gilding and, when applied to an object, creates the illusion of solid gold. Gold leaf is produced in books of 25 sheets as ‘loose leaf’ or ‘transfer leaf’ and can be found in art and craft retailers across the UK. Both loose and transfer gold leaf measure approximately 8x8cm and are manufactured in different grades and shades.

What is glitter?

Glitter is an assortment of small, reflective particles that come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colours. Glitter particles reflect light at different angles, causing the surface to sparkle or shimmer. Glitter is similar to confetti, sparkles and sequins, but somewhat smaller. Since prehistoric times, glitter has been made from many different materials including stones such as malachite, and mica,[1] as well as insects[2] and glass.[3] Modern glitter is usually manufactured from the combination of aluminium and plastic.
