You mentioned cotton swabs...I like to use the foam makeup applicators to help burnish BMF down. They look very similar to cotton swabs but have foam tips on them. They actually buff the foil as you burnish it down. Here's a pic of what I'm talking about.
I don't believe I've posted on here yet, but I live just south of Knoxville. I'll more than likely be at the Cookeville show in March. I used to attend it every year, but I haven't been since my little boy was born.
Bob, I'm looking forward to seeing some of your latest work. I'm going to have to get your book and try to improve my paint skills. There's always top-notch stuff by everyone at this show; it's very motivating!
Hey, guys. I just recently joined this forum. I hadn't built anything since my boy was born a little over 2 years ago, but I'm now getting back into it. Anyway, I'll be there tomorrow and I'm looking forward to it. See you guys there!
