Composition Gold Leaf, also referred to as Imitation Gold Leaf, Dutch Gold, Dutch Metal and Schlagmetal, is imitation gold leaf made from brass, a combination of copper and zinc. Composition Leaf will tarnish and requires a protective sealer upon completion of gilded surface.

Imitation Silver Leaf is made of aluminum, and is essentially thin aluminum foil. It is very similar in appearance to genuine silver leaf, but easier to handle than real silver, and is less expensive. Imitation silver leaf will slowly tarnish and lose its luster if not sealed against oxidation.
