Thanks, everyone. I will research these places.

I am trying to figure out now if I should spring for real gold leaf or be content with composition leaf. I would like to try both to experience the difference. But, I know it would cost a lot for the real gold! I wonder if I need all of the tools that are traditionally involved with real gold- the gilders cushion, tip, agate burner etc. ??

Also, have you experienced painting egg tempera on top of the leaf?
