hi there,

I been thinking about giving my computer a rest and try to get to grips with doing more "hands-on" creative projects (I've tried very basic jewelry a while back, but I dunno..)

I've moved on to gift cards, I've bought a book, a whole bunch of things (mat, card, all sorts of sharp implements, lots of glue, glitter and other shiny things!)

.. and here comes my reason for this posting..

following one of the tutorials in my book, they use "thinners" to tranfer an image from a photocopy to a piece of paper - I bought a bottle of thinners, followed the tut to the letter, but alas, the image transfer didn't work, not even close...

my question is therefore, what have I done wrong!?

what indeed is the mystery behind thinners / did I buy the wrong stuff?

if anyone has any ideas whatsoever... let me know...

Cheers
kit

Avoiding work as usual, I Googled the process and it seems pretty simple. You are using an image printed out of an actual copy machine and not a home inkjet copier, yes?

...the reason being that toner and ink are completely different things.

Ok firstly thanks for replies, I was using a basic photocopy (a friend also mentioned that if it were a laser copier it wouldn't have worked...) but I dunno...

So I guess its back to the drawing board... !

Cheers!
