You mean... I could make toner copies of, say, library books, and then do this method? I'm just confused why you wouldn't just use the toner copy itself (and glue it down).

Any chance someone could take a before/after pic? Undecided


The point of using the tape is so once you remove the paper, you have a transparent copy.

So compared to the acetone way, this has the words right way around, more precise b/c you know exactly what image you'll get, definitely shiny, more work, and no fumes.

yup (its kind of sad about the no fumes tho....)

some people aren't keen on the shininess, but if you're sealing anyway it doesn't matter so much.  You can tell on the corners the places where the paper just would not come off (little hazy white spots) though I kind of like it.

You just call it 'distressed' and say 'it adds to the character of the piece'...that's what I do anyways!
