Abstract

The selection of a transparency material faces two conflicting requirements. (1) It should not diffuse light and, therefore, its surface should be smooth. (2) It should be receptive to the adhesion of the wax-based ink and, therefore, its surface should be slightly rough.

The selection of a transparency material faces two conflicting requirements. (1) It should not diffuse light and, therefore, its surface should be smooth. (2) It should be receptive to the adhesion of the wax-based ink and, therefore, its surface should be slightly rough.

To satisfy these conflicting demands, I propose a transparency material 10 with a smooth surface 12 and a rough surface 14, onto which is coated a thin layer of transparent wax 16. Thus, the composite transparency material 18 will have the requisite smoothness and will present to the wax-based ink 20 a compatible surface on which to fuse.
