      I've been experimenting with cutting Rubylith with an Xacto. It comes
      as a peel off.
      I've been assuming that I'd peel away the area to expose and leave the
      mask on the backing, which would keep the Kreene and pp separate, no?

      Haven't actually gotten 'round to a test exposure yet, though. Maybe
      this week.
