goldbeating (<metal finishing processes and techniques>, <metalworking processes and techniques>, ... Processes and Techniques (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Process of making gold leaf by beating or pressing gold into a very thin, flexible sheet. An example of a common method of production begins with a small ingot of gold alloyed with small amounts of silver and copper, which is rolled into a long ribbon, the ribbon is then cut up into pieces, the pieces are placed between sheets of heavy paper and enclosed in a sheepskin, then hammered until the leaves of gold have been reduced to a thickness of about 0.001 mm,so delicate that they can be moved or straightened with a light breath.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Verwijst naar het proces van het maken van bladgoud, dat sinds de oudheid weinig is veranderd. Een kleine baar van een goudlegering met kleine hoeveelheden zilver en koper wordt in een lange strook van circa 0,025 mm dik gerold. De strook wordt vervolgens in vierkante stukken van circa 3 x 3 cm gesneden, de stukken worden tussen vellen zwaar papier geplaatst en in een schapenvacht gestopt en vervolgens wordt er met een hamer op geslagen tot ze 10 x 10 cm groot zijn. De vierkante stukken worden daarna in vier gelijke delen gesneden, in perkament verpakt en opnieuw geslagen. Dit procedé wordt herhaald tot de goudbladen een dikte van ca. 0,001 mm hebben. Vervolgens worden ze bijgeknipt tot vierkanten van ca. 8,5 x 8,5 cm, en tussen vellen zijdepapier tot een boekje gemaakt. Ieder boekje bevat 25 goudbladen, die zo kwetsbaar zijn dat ze verplaatst en glad gemaakt kunnen worden door er licht op te blazen.
