"After the InkJet transfer to metal set back I just went ahead with the
tried and true photo printing. I got the pictures printed in 3.5"x5"
size, cut out, and thr first two coats of gloss clear enamel on them.
I’ll put on another coat or two tonight, and then it’s the part I
Trying to glue these images on is the bane of my
existence. I use a 3M spray-on high strength adhesive. It holds great
and does not discolor the image. The problem is it always squishes out
the sides and you can not clean this stuff off. I’ve fixed part of the
problem by puting the image on the book and then putting down masking
tape around the image. This protects book, but some flow over always
seems to get on the face of the image. What I wish they made (or I
could at least find) is big post-it note where the whole back was
sticky. I could cover the face of the image, glue the back, and apply
it to the book and let the glue set, and then remove the masking tape
and the post it in one go. As it is, I’m ondering it spray on silicone
lube will keep the glue from sticking to the face of the picuter and
not damage the enamel or the image.
The portrait format images
will go on the small books and the landscape ones will go on the large
books. Like I said befor, all the images are 3.5"x5"…"
