I am making some leaves for a cake that I am doing for Sunday. The first page that I did a week or so ago was fine. The three I did tonight have globs of ink through the leaves. This is a brand new printer and I was just about in tears thinking it was messed up already.
As an afterthought, I ran the same page of leaves through on a Frosting Sheet and no problem at all. They look great.
Any ideas? I know the wafer paper doesn't absorb as well, but should I be changing any settings - it's on "photo" and "matte presentation paper". I ran one off on semi-gloss presentation paper and it didn't make a difference.
What kind of printer do you have
Once you gel them it will probably be all right. Ii actually add color to my gel and alter the colors a bit anyway. Leaves aren't perfectly colored IRL.
Molly - It's an Epson CX8400.
Leah - You are right - I was able to use about 50% of them once they were gelled. I am also going to give them a quick shot of bronze lustre spray, so that should disguise most of the imperfections.
I guess printers just don't like wafer paper.
