In reply to: Transferring computer printed design to skin info needed posted by Maureen on August 6, 2002 at 09:55:34:

Oh how I have faffed with the art of transferring!
I could never get my inkjet printouts to transfer, even with alcohol.
I have found that my HP laserjet transfers, using nail polish
remover. Two points though:
1. I can only get it to work with a certain type of remover, it is an
acetone free one, and it's main two ingredients are ethyl acetate and
isypropanol. The usual kind, with acetone and then aqua (water) as
it's first two ingredients, doesn't work.
2. You have to dab the remover on the *back* of the paper, as you
hold it on the skin - the normal wetting-the-skin mode doesn't seem
to work, either.
As far as deoderant goes - I have found that the difference between
those that work and those that don't is... ALCOHOL.
I use a man's roll-on, as it seems to be the onyl one I can find with
the good ole alcohol in it.
My inkjet printer is an Epson, and as far as I know, tranferring
doesn't work - if anyone knows different, please let me know.
