The Manufacturing 
of Gold leaf.
  
 Bar pressing
 The thick gold bars are then pressed by machine to become thin golden belts which are cut into gold leaves as thin paper.
 
  
 Belt cutting
 The gold belt is cut by machine into squares of 90 x 95 mm. Since the weight of these squares should be basically the same, their length has to be constantly adjusted according to the difference of the thickness of the water-box belt. Each wad with 144 pieces is taken as a unit for adjustment.
 
  
 Softening the gold pieces
 Each wad of gold pieces cut off from the gold belt will become soft after having been heated and annealed by the heat-treatment furnace.
 
  
 Hand hammering
 The softened 90 x 95 mm gold pieces in square are hammered by a 1.8 kg hammer at three intervals by the worker, each requiring no less than 980 times for expansion (each interval requires heating for softening in order to be expanded) into gold leaves of 120 x 120 mm in square and 0.025-0.028 mm in thickness.
 
  
  
 Incubating
 A piece of black gold paper of 10 cm in square is put into the incubator for heating, in order to expand gold quickly after spills are installed as the next procedure.
 
  
 Layering with black paper
 Tiny spills are put into the black gold paper of 100 x 100 mm, commonly called “Kaizi”. A spill is put between each piece of black gold paper, until 2304 layers are filled with spills.
 
  
 Machine hammering
 Tiny spills of 30 x 30 mm will be hammered by machine about 3000 times, so as to be expanded to be 50 x 50 mm. Then big spills of 50 x 50 mm will be further hammered by machine about 2000 times to be expanded into 100 x 100 mm.
 
  
 Second layering
 Kaizi will be put into the black paper of 195 x 195 mm. Each kaizi is placed between each piece of black gold paper, until 2304 layers are filled with it and packed in a craft paper bag.
 
  
 Papering
 With goose feather, the worker gingerly takes out the gold foils with workmanship from the black gold paper piece by piece. Then, they will be arranged into piles of gold foils and put into paper in the shape of square foils (a piece of paper is put between each foil). Each set will consist of 100 pieces and the cut off pieces will be used as fringe foils.
