* Warning: Due to the wide variations in the properties of white computer paper timing> can vary as much as 15 minutes; therefore, Circuit Bridge does not recommend its use.

Recommended Paper for Drawings
• Clear plastic film, such as acetate, overhead transparency.
Note: Do not use heavyweight card stock papers or premium computer printer papers.
• Drawings must be black and white only, no gray tones.
• The most important trait in a good drawing is to make sure it is very opaque (very dark). The higher the opacity the better.
• When tracing or drawing your own artwork, make sure to use an opaque pen.
• When using computer printers, setting the printer for premium inkjet/laser paper usually results in better opacity. However, do not use premium paper.
*Tip: Reinsert your copy into your printer several times to produce a very dark image.
Recommended Paints
Thick, slow drying paints work the best. Thinner paints can be use but require some practice to produce desired effect. Do not use runny paints.
Recommended Light Sources
• Sunlight.
• Fluorescent Full Spectrum/Daylight/Cool White tubes 18 inches.
• Compact fluorescent bulb with 150w to 200w equivalent incandescent output such as “Lights of America” model 2342.
• Commercially available light tables using at least two 15w or greater fluorescent tubes.
Exposure tips
• Make sure entire surface of PhotoEZ™ is in good contact with drawing. VERY IMPORTANT!
• Place PhotoEZ™ on black non-reflective surface during exposure.
• Keep PhotoEZ™ perpendicular to light source.
• When using sunlight, cover PhotoEZ™ before and after exposure to guard against over exposure.
• Use a kitchen timer especially when using sunlight.
• Experiment with small pieces first.
