Gold leaf are made of raw gold. Gold foil is pressed crude as thin as possible and cut into small pieces
a square centimeter. The squares are then placed on a cellophane paper of 10 square centimeters. The paper is rubbed
talc end so that the gold leaf does not adhere. Cellophane paper with golden square stacked on top of each other.
Then, the stack is cashed in double leather bags. Stabilized by a wooden frame, the bags are placed on a slab of granite
or marble. Bugs wood are inserted on the sides of the bags to immobilize them.
Then, the bags are hammered. During hammering, heat builds up and causes the expansion of gold leaf. Therefore the leaves must be transferred to a paper cellophane four square centimeters all encased in leather bags to undergo the second hammering that lasts four hours. The size of the final sheet will be about twelve to fourteen square centimeters.
Thereafter each piece is cut into smaller pieces using a bamboo blade. Cutting should be performed in a wind protected room so that the gold leaf does not wrinkle.
