<p>can you use an inkjet printer or does it need to be laser?</p>
<p>Hi, I think the author is trying to say that inkjet ink will run, making the image fuzzy/unclear. (that's what I gathered from similar instructables, atleast)</p><p>So depending on the type of image and intended result it might work, but laser printed is definitely better.</p>
<p>Inkjet printers use liquid ink sprayed through microscopic nozzles onto the paper and absorbed by the paper. Laser printers use a toner cartridge (filled with fine powder) and a heated fuser which fuses the toner to the paper (not absorbed).</p>
<p>Hi, it has to be a laser, 'cause the ink of the inkjets can easily spread away (not sure how to tell it)</p>
<p>This is a good technique. I wanted to mention another material that people don't seem to be aware of - Acrylic wood finish. (aka &quot;polycrylic&quot;, &quot;water-soluble poly&quot;, etc.) It's basically the same technique as above, but the acrylic finish may allow for cleaner results.<br></p><p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="281" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/_lTh4JJyZtA" width="500"></iframe></p>
<p>wow! Amazing cool! I'm going to try!</p>
Interresting idea. I need to dust off our old laser printer, I already have some ideas... Thanks for sharing.
Very useful info, thanks for sharing.
thanks & merci
merci pour la version bi-langue
Hey why didn't my comments appear on their respective step pages? Why is this site always screwing up? I do really like this project, just the descriptions were a bit on the rough side. Now I'm going to have to delete each of my carefully crafted comments.
this looks a lot like <a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Printed-Wooden-Panels-for-Your-Home-or-how-to-dec/" rel="nofollow">this</a>&nbsp;instructable but the sponge idea is a lot better than using your own finger, love the work!
This does appear to be the laser toner transfer method that is often used for masking printed circuit boards prior to etching them. Just they're using it here to decorate wood, and not planning on etching it.
