Emulsion refuses to stick to papergreenspun.com : LUSENET : polaroid transfers : One Thread
The removal and the transfer of the emulsion was a peice of cake but after they had been left to dry on the paper for 12 hours the emulsion simple crinkled or rolled and refused to adhere to the paper. I am using a Bockingford 300gsm Water Colour Paper. What is going on?

I was wondering if you used a roller to push the emulsion down onto the paper while it was still wet? If this is the problem I would even try rewetting the ones you already did and rolling them onto the paper to see if you can salvage them. I use one from Hobby Lobby that is hard but flexible rubber. I think they are called brayer rollers. If you already did this I can't imagine why your emulsion is pealing up!
Good luck! Angela

We have found that using Fabriano 140 pound hot press works the best.
