Re: [BKARTS] Apprentice Bookboard - mold of four shades



Robert Angus described making a stack of pasteboards that went moldy
in the press, and asked

Don?t use waxed paper for longer than overnight: it will trap
moisture in the object instead of wicking it out. Don?t rush making
boards with paste: build them up two balanced layers at a time, and
let them dry thoroughly before going on to the next layer. And listen
when Bill Minter tells you something: a few weeks ago he mentioned
Bill Anthony?s experience with just this problem.
