Note: Any of various materials used to replicate gold leaf. Genuine gilding has been imitated since medieval times by using a transparent yellow glaze over silver or tin leaf. In the 19th century, bronze leaf was also used as a gilding imitation. Currently, imitation gold leaf is typically made from tinted sheets of aluminum or white gold (palladium and platinum).

Dutch ..... De verscheidene materialen die worden gebruikt om bladgoud na te bootsen. Authentiek bladgoud wordt al sinds de middeleeuwen ge├»miteerd door een transparant geel glazuur aan te brengen op bladzilver of -tin. In de 19e eeuw werd ook bladbrons voor dit doeleinde gebruikt. Tegenwoordig wordt imitatiebladgoud meestal gemaakt van gekleurde vellen aluminium of wit goud (palladium en platina).
