The gold is applied as a series of overlapping, concentric circles.  The gold becomes opaque when the thickness reaches around 5 micro-inches (0.000005 inches).  Using the Gold Star and our Brush Gold Solution, one pass of concentric circles applies around 3-5 micro-inches.  Since we have always had a lifetime warranty on our gold plating, we want to make sure we apply around 30 micro-inches of gold.  This means we cover the entire emblem approximately 6 times.
