[BKARTS] cotton gloves

You don't want knit cotton gloves, which are the ones that I've often
been stuck using when doing museum education work. Blah. You want
thinner ones. Either of the inspection gloves listed here would be
fine, though I'd favor the thinner ones myself. Also, over on
Museum-L the matter of the stability of the adhered vinyl dots for
grips has been discussed, and if I recall correctly they got a
thumbs-down from the object conservators: they can be damaging to
objects. You could search the archive to double-check.
