Nope, you need genuine silver leaf. I'm pretty sure it's fine silver (.999).

No. Needs to be fine silver leaf - 99% silver. I recommend using Voltarra brand Silver Leaf for this tutorial. It has the best results.

Becky, yes it was a little different but it was likely the brand of silver causing the problem in the end. I've always used Asian silver leaf, Italian for some reason doesn't work as well - just a bit thicker. Japanese has shown to work as well.

So VOLTARA brand leaf or the little Japanese squares work best

Amber

I've have been buying from glass diversions . Can you suggest a supplier for the Voltarra silver leaf.? I only found with Pacific Gold leaf.

Thanks again. Becky

Becky, yes, you get it through Pacific on their website - have seen in Amazon, too. The Japanese silver squares are on eBay.

Do you use the loose version or the transfer version of silver leaf from Voltarra?
