1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / Magic Touch paper? on: September 09, 2006 10:10:48 AM
Hey everyone.

 My boyfriend recently came across this big roll of Magic Touch paper, OBM 500, and figured that I could find a use for it.  Of course I can!  If only I could figure out how to use it.  I googled it and I found out that OBM 500 is used for textile transfers, which is awesome (I wouldn't have much use for it if it were for paper or mugs or something.  I'm a textile artist.) but I haven't found any instructions.  I've used regular inkjet transfer paper before....is it the same?  Can I just cut it down to regular paper size and run it through my inkjet printer?  If so, do I print on the smooth side or the fuzzy side?  I'd assume the smooth side, but why in the world is there a fuzzy side in the first place?

Sorry for so many questions, I'm just excited about it and can't wait to get started.  The roll is a foot wide and 65.5 feet long so I have plenty of it to work with!

I'm not sure if this has been asked before...I went through a few pages and didn't see it, but I may have overlooked something. 

At any rate, I have a 4 oz. bottle of Speedball's blue night glo ink and it's gotten kind of clumpy.  In fact, it kind of looks like cottage cheese >_>  I was wondering if there is any easy way to salvage it.  Maybe add water or something?  I dont want to ruin it-- I haven't even gotten a chance to use it yet!
