Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Dun bladmetaal dat bij het vergulden wordt gebruikt om een zilverachtig effect te creëren. Bladaluminium heeft een vrij doffe, loodachtige tint, en wordt dan ook als goedkoop alternatief beschouwd voor bladzilver of bladpalladium. Bladaluminium wordt hoofdzakelijk in de commerciële kunst toegepast. 
Spanish ..... Una hoja delgada usada para dorar, logrando un efecto plateado. Debido a su aspecto relativamente ennegrecido (plomizo), la hoja de aluminio es un substituto inferior a la hoja de plata y a la hoja de paladio. Principalmente es utilizado en las artes comerciales.
