I like to work with recycled materials and I save the metal foil wrapping that normally would be discarded as waste when unwrapping a chocolate bar or a soup cube.  I do work with metal leafs such as gold, brass, aluminium and silver but I find these modern leafs to thin to use on a surface exposed to wear. The foils above are sturdier and they are pre-glued to a paper backing. If the chocolate paper was good for machine sewing then perhaps the soup cube foil might be good for gilding buttons.



Erk! Soup for dinner, again
