Silver Leaf



Silver Leaf
I want to silver leaf my mirror (wood) but what items do I need to varnish/fix in place?

I have the Silver Leaf but not sure what fixing/varnish to use? I don’t want it flaking in future. Also do I need to prepare my mirror and can anyone help with the tools I require? Thanks
Oh, I should have stated its imitation Silver Leaf. Thanks for the reply.

You can buy “sizing” adhesive next to the metallic leaf which is a permanent white glue that stays tacky for quite a while and that will hold the leafing on. You can also just thin down some permanent white glue, let it dry fairly well and it will also stay tacky awhile.
(Either of those should also seal the wood if it’s bare, which would be good.)

If you’re using real-metal leafing (not metallic plastic-backed transfer foils or there’s at least one liquid named “Leaf”), you can seal it after application with any water-based clear polyurethane from the hardware store (probably Gloss version, but perhaps Satin if you want to tone it down–Varathane is one good brand), and many of the “sealer-finishes” you’ll find at craft stores are basically the same thing.
Polyurethane would be the toughest clear finish but you could also use other kinds of finish for a less hard result.

Some of the metals used to make leaf won’t oxidize (and shouldn’t come off if adhered well) like aluminum, but some will definitely oxidize so you might just want to seal any of them.

For more info on applying real-metal leaf, check out this page at my site:
http://glassattic.com/polymer/leaf.htm (click on *Leaf*)
My site is mostly about polymer clay, but we apply metal leaf to raw clay too to get metallic effects. Raw polymer clay is slightly sticky so the leaf adheres easily to it, or if the clay is baked/hardened first, then the leaf would be applied the same way it would be applied to wood.

Don’t know what you mean about preparing the mirror, but you can either take it out first (best), or just remove any sizing/finish that gets on it while still wet (the leaf won’t stick to glass/mirror), or you could put painters tape or regular masking tape on the mirror so you could apply sizing and finish more easily.
