What is Dutch Gold?

Dutch Gold is imitation gold leaf, also known as Composition Gold Leaf, Schlagmetal and ductile.

It’s slightly thicker than gold leaf and made from copper, zinc and brass – but don’t let that put you off as you cannot tell the difference, between gold leaf and Dutch Gold.

Used for interiors only.

Why use Dutch Gold?

Visually, you cannot tell the difference between Dutch Gold and real gold leaf so if you prefer to keep the cost down, Dutch Gold is so much more cost effective.

Dutch gold is not recommended for exterior use, however highly recommended for interior walls, ceilings, picture frames, beams, coving, plaster works….
