applied in a thin coating that is brushed out with a hake brush
allowing excesses to flow off the sides. It would seem that casting a
thick layer like carbon printing would lead to excessive topography on

areas. That would (I think) make printing details difficult. It would
appear that a thin coat would be better. These is just an intuitive
