Default Re: Lasercopy transfer

Hi Mel and all others.
Did the toner stick just a bit or not at all?
A laser printer that I used recently did not want to transfer by pulling the paper of.
Then I remembered a golden tip from someone else who said he left the paper on until the acetone dried up completely. After that he wetted the paper under the tap and when it was wet he started to rubb of the paper.
It comes off in little rolled up bits but if done with care you can rubb of the paper almost completely. This might not work (with the high quality paper i used) for very fine work but I did use it on both buckle designs.
There were a few furry bits under the microscope but still very good to see where the graver should go.
If I try again I will make some pics.
The best things in life are still made by hand.
