Ok, so I was talking with Veldryne and because we are both big fans of the X-Wing series of novels we had an interesting question....
If someone were to do a Lt Kettch costume (the fictional Ewok pilot that is highlighted in the Wraith Squadron novels) what name would go on the RL application? Would you apply as Wedge Antilles with the Kettch doll strapped to your chest? Or would you apply as Kettch with Antilles strapped to your back? Hahaha.
Also, would the application apply to the Rebel Legion as a Rebel pilot? Or would the application apply to the 501st as a TIE fighter pilot since Antilles was under cover with an Imperial unit at the time?
profezzorn: hey ARKM, did you ever write a that tutorial on the toner transfer method?

ARKM: *waves hand* "I'm not the slacker you're looking for"

ARKM: Sadly no. Well, that's not entirely true. I did finish writing it but did not perform the steps and take pics of said steps.

ARKM: So it's like "Step 5: Using the high temperature temp, tape the paper with the design on it onto the metal part to be etched."

ARKM: ... but there's no Pic 4.

profezzorn: from other things I've read it's just PNP blue with some heat and pressure applied, right?

ARKM: Some use that. I could not get successful results with it but others have.

profezzorn: so what do you use?

ARKM: I personally use glossy magazine pages. I just rip a page out of a magazine and put it in the printer. The pages have to be the right thickness for the printer though. Too thin and they rip in the printer.
