Just got a lamination machine.. not so impressed. The plastic did not adhere to the front surface enough to ensure deep rich blacks... it does a good enough job for making menus I suppose... but for proper color in the darks it might not cut it.
I will use it for now.. but just a thought/question...
Has anyone ever tried varnishing a photo? IS there a kind of varnish that would protect it enough so that you could dab and wipe oil paint off of it as you would a laminated photo? Does or would it look better than a laminated photo??
I'm working from a photo... initially I had placed it behind a glass pane I took out of a picture frame (thought I was clever) but the glare and reflections (even of my own face) make seeing the blacks in the photo impossible.
