Hard Press Transfer Sheets
Hard press transfer leafs are excellent for covering larger surface areas. It works well on wood and furniture as well. It does not work well for garnishing applications where only a small piece of gold is used due to the gold being so firmly pressed and pounded to the transfer backing.
Hard press transfer leafs come firmly attached to transfer sheets. To separate from transfer backing, hard press transfer metal leafs should be smoothed over the desired surface area and then the backing removed. Depending on the surface medium food glue, simply syrup should be applied.
