To strengthen gold leaves and to make them thicker and more flexible, they are burned together. First of all, 2 gold leaves are placed over hot (~1000℃) charcoal to join them together, then add one extra leaf on each side of the double leaves to obtain one flawless thick leaf(made of 4 leaves). These days, sometimes iron is used instead of charcoal.
