Add a unique effect to your artwork or decorations
The "schabin" broken leaf is a stack of small, irregular-sized leaves which, when used in gilding, give a more textured, 3-dimensional finish to the object being gilded than the that of traditional square leaves. The name 'broken leaf' comes from the traditional process of beating gold, silver, copper and aluminum into thin sheets of metal leaf. The broken pieces from the edges and corners of the sheets are collected as schabin flakes for bringing a unique effect to artwork
Let your imagination loose!
Let your crafting juices flow and turn everyday household objects into conversation starters on your coffee table or, or striking serving dishes for your dinner parties. Bring the wow factor to any craft project you have planned. Apply them to furniture or even sections of wall in your house. The possibilities are endless!
Good for business!
If you are in the arts and crafts business selling your own handmade designs, these schabin flakes will make every piece you create unique and certainly help them stand out from the crowd.
Easy to use!
Whilst professional artists and sculptors may use this product, you certainly do not need to be an experienced gilder to work with it. It can be applied using standard gilding size (adhesive) and simple gilding techniques. And of course, adding it to homemade slime could not be easier but watch their faces light up when you do!
