more lamination & foiling

Here is another lamination on sheer in progress.

The paper has been attached with heavy gel medium by thermofax screen printing,
dried, heat-set with an iron, and now has been soaked in water for about 10 minutes.
I'm in the process of removing the excess paper by first rolling off as much as possible with my gloved hands, then using a plastic pot-scrubber to get the last of it off.  As you can see this is very messy.
I recommend doing it outdoors if at all possible.
I have a plastic receptacle for my discarded wet paper, which I throw into the compost pile.

Mostly cleaned, I will wash it in the machine to get all the little stray pieces of wet paper.
