Re: [BKARTS] gold finishing



Jet and All,

Swift's Scotch Sponge is again available through Bookmakers International.
It is a traditional cleanup for gold leaf, saves the excess gold which can
be extracted from the "sponge" when there is enough collected.

Jet,

You may also use 0000 steel wool to remove excess gold. It is not as
abrasive
as a scouring pad. You will also have less excess by lowering your dwell
time.
