Re: [BKARTS] questions duplicating aged paper



I would want to experiment before I used it on anything valuable.  But I
would guess that by the time the sugar is carmelized (carbonized) and
combined with the salt, there wouldn't be much to interest a bug.  If the
sugar is not cooked to the very dark brown you may have trouble.
