Nice post from ModPurist on how to do acetone print transfers.
I was recently in a discussion with a fellow modder here at BitFix about making a logo for the carrying case of his mod, I suggested an acetone transfer might work, but at the time I had no idea what the process was, so I looked into it more. I found out that its pretty easy and can result in very nice prints.
Here is a simple run through of how to do an acetone print transfer.
What you will need:
Pure Acetone (the main ingredient in finger nail polish remover)
Image printed mirrored with a laser printer
Medium to transfer to (cloth, wood, metal, thicker paper)
