Extra thick superior quality 24 carat Eco conflict free gold foil for Keum-Boo.
This gold foil is absolutely gorgeous to work with. We send this to jewellery makers all across the world, and with the high reviews, I think it is clear exactly how amazing this foil is.
It is thicker than most commercially available gold foil, which makes it much easier to handle, it can easily be cut with fine scissors and even paper punches. We're quite sure it will give you more gold for your money - we suggest you do a comparison with other foils available!
Thanks to its thickness it is excellent for Keum-Boo (also called Kumbo, Kum-Boo, Kum-Bu or Keum-Bu), an ancient Korean technique where you fuse gold foil to your silver (or other metals, like steel), using heat and pressure, it gives a beautiful result.
If you are a silver clay artist, this is an ideal technique to try.

- 3.5 x 5cm
- This foil weighs approximately 0.2gm
- Varied thickness (see note below), but approximately 0.014 mm/14 micron - MUCH thicker than most foils on the market. Do your comparisons and check the numbers carefully, you might get a surprise.
Note: The thickness varies from 0.012-0.016 mm, or 12-16 micron, across the surface. The thickness vary across as it is manufactured by adding many layers of ultrathin gold foils together until they reach the desired thickness. This also means that the density of the foil varies to that of a milled and rolled out gold lump/sheet of the same size. In comparison, gold leaf is about 0.12 microns - so our gold foil is A LOT thicker!

This foil is perfect for keum boo. The thickness means you get a great colour without having to overlay which I had to do with other products.
Great product, used it for Keum Boo project, lovely stuff.
This foil is a lovely thickness and perfect for Keum boo, it has a beautiful rich colour and is easy to apply. This is my preferred choice over other suppliers.
Ideal for Keum Boo. I draw my design on tracing paper first and then put the foil between this and another layer of tracing paper so easier to cut out without touching it. Can use a hot plate to make it adhere to the silver but I have an UltraLite Beehive Kiln, purchased from Metal Clay, which works a treat. Gives a lovely effect to jewellery without spending a fortune.
This gold foil is perfect for Keum Boo. It's the second time I've ordered this. Good value and sent very quickly. Thank you Metal Clay!
First try at keum boo and this foil was great. Easier to handle than I imagined it would be.
Very nice product, great that I can get a smaller piece than in other places so that I could try out the technique
Great for keum boo, I'm so glad you are offering it by smaller pieces!
