washable poster paints

Postby erniej » Mon Feb 04, 2008 5:09 pm


I am sure someone has tried this by now but for those who have not I want to share this. I was having a miserable time with "bad linking". I went out and bought some white and black matt colored washable crayola poster paint. I mixed the colors together until I got a color that I would describe as dark grey. I'm color blind so that's the best I can do. I am still getting some "bad linking" but nothing as bad as I was getting before. I just tried this out but I think I will be able to make even more improvements with some experimenting.

In addition, you don't have to cover the entire object. Do a scan and then just paint the "bad linking" spots and then re-scan.

I hope this helps someone.
