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. Because of this, joss paper is also known as Spirit Paper.
Each sheet of rough paper is accented by a piece of silver leaf that has been attached to the sheet with adhesive. Half of the papers have then been brushed with an orange wash of paint to create a golden leaf from the silver.
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 30 single Joss sheets: 15 with silver leaf and 15 with golden. Each sheet measures approximately 5 inches square.
