I have just taught myself to do chemical etching on copper and brass
using a paint resist, and scratching into the paint with a scribe. My
goal is to use PnP blue in order to be able to create the kind of
imagery and text I’m after. I thought learning the etch process would
be the hard part… but now that I’ve got that settled I find no one
(Office Max, Office Depot, the library, the drugstore, etc) will let
me run my PnP blue through their photocopier! No one. I’m so
I am going to have to buy a laser printer to dedicate to this
process and I am happy and willing to do it, but don’t want to buy
one which won’t work and will jam. Anyone using PnP blue
successfully with a laser printer, particularly one that is fairly
new so still available?
I bought my PnP blue from Thompson Enamel. (Yes, I called them and
they were no help, they insisted “We’ve never had a problem with
jamming, any printer will work.”) If you have a printer recommend
for me, let me also know where you get your PnP blue. I’m seeing it
in a number of places, and there may be differences between them.
Hoping someone out there can help me!
