Applying the razor scraper removes most of the gum, xylene removes most of the remainder, and what’s left isn’t visible through the frit.
They’re 25 mm square and 4 mm thick, with sufficient edge imperfections to require half a millimeter of clearance on all sides
Sixteen pixels would make an adequate display:
