I think he got a piece of wood shaped like a figurado and kept adapting a piece of paper until he found a shape he liked for a wrapper...That's pretty neat! Even though I can't understand what you really did here: " I had a wooden mold machined to figure out the shape of the wrapper. "
I have my doubts. Mold also starts out looking like white dots, and mold smells moldy. Anyway, a very close eyeballing reveals whether it's mineral or vegetable.Larry Butcher, baccy farmer in KY, told me white dots mean minerals from the soil. I forget what weather he said makes a plant pull up these minerals & spot up the leaves. Doesn't hurt anything.
Where? .. all filler leaf amounts are half a leaf. Is that the lost part?
