Print Waterproof Plastic Maps


Step 2: Materials

Picture of Materials
Only a few inexpensive materials are required for this project:
   (4) Sheets of plain printer paper
   (1) One quart, clear plastic sandwich bag
   (1) White plastic kitchen garbage bag

    Access to an ink jet printer*
    Clothes iron
    Ironing board or other heat resistant surface
    Utility knife or sissors

*This process was developed for an Ink jet printer.
Do not attempt with a laser printer. The heat used to fuse the toner will likely have an undesirable effect on the plastic coated paper and may gum-up the printer's internal mechanisms.
