Color rubbing off BMF

RELATED TOPICS: BARE-METAL
Tip: I recently had a problem with the color rubbing off gold Bare-Metal foil when I applied it onto a model. Well, last night when I was unwrapping a snack the solution hit me like a ton of bricks: Use a small piece of ordinary kitchen plastic wrap (the clear, clingy wrap - not the kind that won't stick to anything) and position it over the foil before you burnish it in place. The gold color won't come off or scratch.

I also found that the plastic wrap will hold small pieces of foil in place while they're being rubbed out, particularly when foiling small emblems.
