My name is James and I was directed here by ZahcStarKiller. I make custom plaques for Star Wars props. I've been doing it for quite a while, and thanks to Chaz, I'm now comfortable coming over to the IRA! I've been lucky enough to work with some incredibly talented saber smiths like Aaron from Solo's Hold and Darth Alice. From what Chaz has told me, this is a very friendly place and I really hope to get to know you guys!

Welcome my friend, to the nicest forum in the galaxy. I am very glad to see you here, and you will quickly understand what I mean. This place is truly different than anywhere else that I have been. Your talents and friendship will be much appreciated here. We have some INCREDIBLE builders that call this place home.
Welcome aboard, James. I think you will love this place.
So where can we check out some of your plaques?
Thank you, Ron! There is a link to my Etsy shop in my profile.
There be some NICE stuff on that page. I ordered myself a plaque for my Romans MK1 Obi just now. I will report back when it gets here, from the reputation that James has, I expect it to be extremely nice.
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.
