    Hi there:) I wrote a couple of messages but they somehow didn't show up ... Anyway , I ll try one more time ...thank you for the tequnique , I love the look of the print on wood and I tried it myself a few times but , I ran into some difficulties . The print comes off with the paper after rubbing in too many places unfortunately ... Enough for it not to look as natural as I would like it to be. I tried putting polyacrilic on wood and after glue the print, I tried putting it on paper first , I tried both in the same time , I tried keeping it even longer that 2 hours and still, the results are the same despite the fact that I'm rubbing the paper off very gently ...There's an example at the end.Are there any specific tricks maybe ? Thank you very much :)
