I have a cheap HP laserjet pro P1102w. For many years the acetone method didn`t work, only with "parchment method" or simular. When I ran out of toner, I bought a new toner casette, and now the acetone transfer method work like a charm.

I have used regular parchment (baking paper) from home depot, but I`ve found a better solution. Print on the "waxy" paper from normal shipping labels. The transfer with a "dammar solution" or something simular will be perfect:) Here is a link so you can see what I mean.

I use the HP laserjet pro P1102w and print onto normal old baking paper sticky taped to normal old printer paper. It can be too warm for standard tape though and my dad spent half a day unjamming it for me. I use a heat proof sticky tape from O'Brien engineering in Australia. transfer solution is a little bottle with 50/50 turps and damar varnish

I use the same method as you Dani, but I really recommend the waxy backside paper on shipping labels. The toner transfer immediately with a quick burnish with my finger nail.

I want to give your trick a try, that video looks like you got amazing detail with your transfer. Where do you tape the 2 sheets together before feeding into the printer? the corners? along the whole edge? double sided tape? Thanks!

I just tape it with a regular tape along the edge about half the way from left corner

acetone. Also don’t pay any attention to the color They can be very
