Gold & Silver Leaf is often used in custom paint to add something to a helmet or tank that cannot be achieved with paint. Leaf is an actual piece of VERY thin metal! It is applied with "size" which acts as a glue to adhere the leaf to the surface. Pinstriping is almost always used with leaf to seal the edges of the leaf and to add to the overall design. A clearcoat can then be brushed or sprayed over the leaf to protect it.
Below are some examples of our leafwork and pinstriping.
