Re: [BKARTS] problems using Schaefer gold foil

Dear Beth,

100 Celsius degree should be ok for the most of the gold tooling. I would try to use dry powdered albumen and have the gold foil on top.
Dry powdered albumen is normaly used when tooling with gold leaf. If you used it under gold foil it will not be too shiny.

Kind regards
