I am currently using an inkjet printer with advanced photo paper to print a black background w/ white text. I am sealing w/ Mod Podge. After layering Ice Resin, my black looks faded, not crisp color. I then had it printed at a photo lab...better qaulity black, but still doesn't come out bright after resin.
Any suggestions? Someone mentioned to print from a laser printer. The only issue is that you can't print on glossy photo paper w/ a laser jet.
Thanks so much!!
Check out Jen Cushman's book -Explore, Create, Resinate - page 42. She says to encase the image between clear packing tape - make a sandwich with your image, sealing both the front and back. Cut around image with scissors, leaving the tiniest of sealed image to ensure resin doesn't seep between the tape.
