Default Re: Electrolytic Etching

3. Using a laser printer, print the image on photograph inkjet paper. Yes it works. I jammed the machine with some heavier stuff but the lighter weight paper works. You need to use glossy inkjet paper or purpose specific etching paper (E3 Etch).

OK, I tried the laser printed design transfer...
I should have read this part more carefully. DO NOT use the thick "Photo Paper" to print your designs for transfer. You'll NEVER get the paper off after you've ironed the design to the metal.
