    Morning
    Graham, I am using standard Printer Paper, nothing special.

    I have made a fair number of pens using images printed on high resolution inkjet paper. I stick them on with Tacky Glue and seal them with two coats of Mod Podge, waiting overnight between each step. What I have found critical is taking great care to seal the ends thoroughly to avoid the resin soaking in. BTW, I use PR for casting and no pressure pot.

    Really big thanks to everyone that has offered help and advice.
    Believe me it has all been very greatfully received and acted upon

    I have just taken out the 3 blanks I have tried this time around (after all of the advice) and so far so good.
    NO Blotches on the paper
    NO Bubbles in the Acrylic
    No Issues (so far)
    They really do look spot on this time.

    I am going to leave them alone now until next weekend (very busy week with work ) and THEN I can get to grips with turning them into pens

    Thanks again everyone, not one for giving up but your help has certainly made my life easier

    Photos of finished pens to follow (Hopefully )
