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 of the part. Pinstriping is almost always used with leaf to seal the edges of the leaf and to add to the overall design. A clearcoat can be brushed or sprayed over the leaf to protect it. Below are some examples of our leafwork and pinstriping.
