Gold And Silver वर्क
For thousands of years, craftsmen have used the fine art of gilding to create masterpieces. The gilder takes incredibly thin leaves of precious metal and adorns a surface with them. In antiquity these leaves were made by a gold beater hammering sheets of metal, such as gold and silver, into extremely thin leaves. Manually, it was a slow and arduous task requiring total control of the hammer and great precision of the eye. Today, modern beating is mostly done by machine which guarantees quality and product consistency. All the other phases of the production process are done by hand by skilled and experienced workers.
Gold leaf is extremely thin sheet of gold (about 0.1 micrometer, or 4 millionths of an inch, thick) used for gilding. Medieval illuminated manuscripts gleam with gold leaf is still widely used for gilding ornamental designs, lettering and edgings on paper, wood, ceramics, glass, textiles, and metal.
Vark, also called varak (also silver leaf, German paper), is super fine filigree foil sheet of pure metals, typically silver but sometimes gold, used to decorate South Asian sweets and food to make those look more appetizing. The silver and gold are edible, though flavorless. Varak is made by pounding silver into sheets, a few micrometers (µm) thick, typically 0.2 µm-0.8 µm. The silver sheets are typically packed between layers of paper for support; this paper is peeled away before use. It is fragile and breaks into smaller pieces if handled with direct skin contact. Those leaves in the 0.2 µm thickness tend to adhere to skin if handled directly. Vark sheets are laid or rolled over some South Asian sweets, confectionery, dry fruits and spices
