Re: [BKARTS] problems using Schaefer gold foil

> Before, I used Swift foil with no problems, but now, this new foil is 
giving me fits.

Dear Beth,

None of the currently available gold foils that I've tested so far work 
well for hand finishing.  The adhesives work over too narrow of a 
temperature range (I can get them to work, but have to reheat the tool 
after one or two impressions.) and their carrier films don't allow for 
fine detail to come through.
