Gilders cushion is needed for all genuine gold and silver leafs. On a rectangular wooden base, a layer of foam is covered with soft suede leather: the final result is a cushion with a rigid base, easy to handle, with a slightly convex and elastic surface, on which the leaf is picked up buy the Gilders Tip, placed for cutting with the Gilders Knife.

Cushion and knife are mainly used for gold and silver leaves to optimize the use of materials while minimizing waste. A light dusting of the leather surface with gypsum or ash obtained from rice straw minimizes the risk of adhesion of the gold leaf to the cushion surface during cutting.
