    Yes good to watch Patni, but as Nick says, there is some nervousness about lead in the workshop.
    Personally, I would press that out in my hydraulic press and a small piece of neoprene rubber.

    Oh and by the way I suggest you change the title to Making a gold leaf. Otherwise it could be taken to mean that very thin gold sheet used to gild picture frames etc. Dennis.

    FWIW, the Potter recommendations for die pressing use lead. That said, the groups are littered with people getting the lead stuck...
