Re: Fw: fore-edge redux



Practically none, it should be to all appearances "invisible" and nothing
but just possible "flecks of color" along the edge.  Ideally, so little you
wouldn't be able to see anything at all, certainly not a "small stripe of
painting" down each edge as your question implies. <g>
