Print image onto Pictorico inkjet transparencies.

Prep the surface to be engraved by cleaning with a degreaser such as Acetone. Apply the “Transfer Majic” to the surface and allow to dry. OR “color” the surface with the Prismacolor marker and allow to dry,

Tape transparency onto prepped surface to be engraved. Only tape one side to allow the transparency to be lifted to check for complete image transfer.
