Re: Printing on eggshells



Diana  and others,

Just a thought. I do the following on fabrics and paper all the time but
never tried eggshells....give it a try -:)

chemical transfer technique:
1.a reverse print-out of your text (ie mirror image)
        I have better success with a photocopy (fresh) rather than
        a laser copy
        Every machine's toner will produde different results.
        You may have to experiement
2. place the copy of text face down on egg,
        with a cotton ball or rag apply acetone on the back of the photocopy
        tko release the toner.
        I think in the case of an egg you may have to cut your paper
        to size and then secure with tape to hold it in place
3. rub gently over the image area with the back of a spoon
4. remove paper to see results (I hope they're good!)
        (you may bave to peek first by lifing only one corner to see what
success you are having before stopping the rubbing process ..)

good luck and have fun,

elsa
