I was heartily recommended to PNP and never having used it before, I
have been experimenting for several hours with no success.
Ultimately, I need to etch 14k gold and etch the design for a
commission with Gold Conductor Etch, Potassium Iodide Solid AU-1/250.
But in following the PNP directions, I have been unable to get the
design to adhere to the metal, despite following its directions –
cleaning metal with steel wool and rinsing with soap and water. I
have been measuring the temperature of the iron between 275 and 325
and varying the time between a minute and five minutes and the resist
just WILL NOT STICK. The sheets were printed from my in-house Brother
Laser Printer which I bought for the job for about $100.
Any thoughts on why I’m not getting this to work?
