Gees Louise.... Who thinks up this stuff? In my wildest dreams I would never have considered a powdered sugar print out. Well, I am 44 today and I can finally say I've heard it all!!!

Tom,
Everytime I read you posts I end up laughing histerically. My father was a plumber and that would have been sacriligeous to him not to mention a mess to clean. Humans are a resourceful lot hey? I guess things like this are the forefathers to the next invention. Incidently, I can show you how to turn a power drill into a circular saw by trying to cut a 1 inch hole in a circular sheet of metal while holding on it. Almost lost some fingers doing that. So I can identify with the toilet rooter idea.

Who knows Epson may read Dougs post and think of a whole new line of business catering to the local bakeries.

Dj, Actually some of the "ideas" folks come up with really seem more like sincere attempts at removing themselves from the collective gene pool than anything else. Sometimes, as an old saying from Japan goes , "One must be open to the Ahhh..... of things." Tom

OOPS----I should have been more specific. Sorry. Is it possible to take a positive scan of a photo and turn that into a negative, then print it on some sort of transparent media for possible dark room printing? Tom

"Digital Contact Prints" are a growing medium. Try a search engine, or subscribe to the 'Digital Silver' list at topica.com, they discuss them there periodically.
