There are a few things that could be going wrong. What I've found
to work best is as follows:
Use an inkjet printer to print on tracing paper (you can buy
tracing paper in pads at Michael's and cut it to 8 1/2" x 11" size.)
Prinitng in red seems to work better than printing in black, I don't
know why, that's just what I've learned. These also have a shelf-
life. They don't seem to work after a few weeks of sitting around.
Rub the skin with deodorant. Not every deodorant works. It seems
that it has to be a tranparent stick that does not contain anti-
perspirant. I've found a clear pink stick and a clear blue stick
that are both from Speedstick by Mennen that work well. Then just
press the tracing paper, design down, onto the skin.
Hope that helps,
