Re: [BKARTS] Making Cloth into Bookcloth

Hello, I've had success with spreading golden's polymer medium on the back
of cloth using a plastic squeegee. I've used this  several times now and the
medium has yet to soak through to the front. Although do mind the edges or
plan to cut them off. Daved Ferrell daved@xxxxxxxxxxx
