Gold leaf refers to thin sheets of gold used in the decoration process, while gilding is the actual technique or process of applying gold leaf or powder to various surfaces.

What are the 3 methods of gilding?

How long does gilding last?

The durability of gilding depends on the type of material used, the environment, and the surface it's applied to, but with proper techniques and maintenance, gilded surfaces can last for hundreds of years.

Why is gold leaf so cheap?
