Do-it-yourself thermal paper

Hello,I am thinking about buying a small mobile printer, but the smallest (500g/1lbs, €50) available is using thermal paper.While I could find the paper rather cheap in the US (from about 6 cent/sheet) here I could not find anything similar.I did stumble across http://www.atarimagazines.com/v6n2/Inventions.html (" ... homemade thermal paper has a darker printout than any thermal paper you could buy. ... Be sure to clean your thermal head ... .") andhttp://www.ehow.com/how_4685502_make-thermal-paper.htmlHas anyone tried it or allready an old thermal printer to try?Even if it will not be suitable for every day use, I am really interested in the subject :-)
