Types of Genuine Leaf:

XX DEEP

xxx DEEP

Also known as loose or regular gold leaf. Each gold leaf is placed on the individual pieces of rouged paper which can then be removed or picked up with a guilder's tip. (The thickness of the gold leaf is average as each manufacturer has their own specifications).
Glass Gold This is the highest quality gold leaf with the fewest patches and pinholes. It is packed on individual pieces of paper like the XX Deep leaf
Patent Gold Also known as transfer leaf or gilding in the Wind. Same quality as XX Deep. The leaves are attached to individual pieces of paper. The gold leaf comes off when pressed on a sized surface. Gilder's tips are not used to remove the individual leaves. Patent leaf, ideally, should be stored in an environment of 80% humidity and wrapped in plastic. If stored in a dry or warm environment, the leaf may come off the paper. To correct this problem, store in a humid area and place under presure in order to reattach the leaves to the paper. If stored in a very hot and humid area, the leaf may not come off the paper. To correct this problem, place the leaf in the refrigerator overnight. (This may not always work). Thickness : 0.2 - 0.4 microns. 
Palladium Leaf Silver in color. Very resistant to corrosives (except nitric acid). Should be used instead of silver leaf in outside gilding.
Silver Leaf Made from Genuine Silver and will tranish.
Moon Gold Made from gold, palladium, platinum and silver
Ribbon Gold  Also known as rolled gold. Should be used on flat areas. Should be used with synthetic or oil size. If the rolls are subject to improper storage, see Patent Leaf for corrective measures.  Roll are available in the following sizes: Master rolls of 67.5 feet (20.5 meters) in length, will cover approximately 22.5 square feet. Master rolls  of 75 feet (23 meters) by 7 3/4" (197mm) wide, will cover approximately 48.4 square ft.
