This Asian ceremonial metal-leaf paper is used in rituals and celebrations to ensure that we don't dwell too much on monetary pursuits. The papers are burned or torn, representing the riches of this world. Sometimes this is called Spirit Paper.
Each sheet of rough paper is accented by two pieces of silver leaf, attached to the sheet with adhesive. On half of the sheet, an orange ink or paint wash has been applied over the silver leaf, creating a golden leaf.
Tear and glue to artwork for a unique effect without all the trouble and expense of leafing techniques. This is perfect for Asian artwork.
Each package contains 10 sheets of joss paper with silvered and golden leaves on each 4-1/2 by 8 inch sheet and maybe a sheet or two that was a bit irregular.
