    How would you store these, please?
    Would being layered between tissue paper and in something like a solid box be sufficient?
    No, I have not become rich but i wants to try our applying silver .goildfoil to some wooded decorations.
    Also, do I need a layer of glue before applying the foil sheet, or will the bare wood give enough grip for the foil?
    Thank you.

    Do you mean gold leaf?

    I would be tempted just to buy some gold or solver spray paint.

    i did think of that but wanted to experiment
    To paint them takes ages I have learnt in the past. I wanted to get items ready for sale for next Christmas lol
