Precious Metal Leaf is an eco friendly and plastic-free addition to any resin jewellery. Simply mix a little into your resin (UV or epoxy) or place in the mould before or adding the resin. If you’re adding the gold leaf first, please make sure you recoat the piece or do a thin clear layer of resin first so that the gold leaf doesn’t come through the resin of the finished piece. It can also be kneaded into translucent polymer clay or brushed on before baking.
Or gold-filled leaf is two layers of pure gold sandwiching bronze that is then hammered out very thin. It comes in loose leaf and can be picked up with a cocktail stick or tweezers.
Please read our full Terms and Conditions and FAQ page before ordering.
Using Precious Metal Leaf
Precious Metal Leaf comes either loose or on a sheet in a 5ml refill in a small cellophane bag (not plastic). Measurements are approximate but this size container will last most resin artists creating memorial and breastmilk jewellery years! A little goes a very long way if you are careful. Please note that this is 5ml by loose, unpacked volume, not weight.
Simply premix with resin then pour this into your mould, or push it into a mould already filled with resin. You can apply to the mould but it’s best to add a thin layer of resin first, or coat the piece after making to protect the leaf. You can also add your clients’ elements or inclusions like breastmilk, lock of hair, umbilical cord and placenta or cremation ashes. Then cure in the usual way.
If working with UV resin we recommend you work in layers to achieve beautiful depths of colour.
