This week we will be talking about foil on a large scale, and how it is applied to different surfaces in an industrial way. As we discussed in a previous post, foil is what we commonly know as "gold leaf", this process in most cases when we heat a metal mold and place it on the material to allow it to be stamped on the surface, this process requires the use of metal molds, the metal plate that is the foil.
Why do we say "in most cases"? Because there are variations of this material that can be applied in food, paintings, frames, ceramics, among others, but these require other techniques and craft processes.
