I want to try the effects of kumboo on some jewelry and need
to know if the 24K gold foil can be too thin?
There is a difference between leaf and foil. leaf (which is probably
what you have) is intended to be glued down using one of a number of
sticky materials (oil or water based sizing, or more modern,
verathane paints). Foil, which is what you need for keum-boo, is much
thicker than leaf. A test is, if you taouch it and it is still there
it is foil, if you touch it and it is damaged then it is leaf.
