Damp cardstock sporeprints.. how to get around this
    #4316026 - 06/20/05 04:18 AM (11 years, 5 months ago)

Hey all,

I've made spore prints many weeks ago and opened one up after putting it in tinfoil and then in ziplock bag... it turns out, the moisture never was released and so the cardstock paper is damp from the moisture of the mushroom head and the spores are next to impossible to scrape off, as the paper itself tears extremely easy when trying to scrape.

What can I do when making future prints to avoid wrapping up moist cardstock paper? I don't know how to dry it and not contaminate it with air dust etc at the same time.

Thanks!

Dont use cardstock to make prints. I use foil which works wonders. Glass slides also work well, and are reusable, which i like alot. Card stock sucks in my opinion.

I also use alum foil and glass microscope slides to make prints.

and I also agree that card stock SUCKS!~

I don't like paper products for prints...at all!~

The mushroom spores get Imbedded into the paper...and they are hard to get off.
Especially on older paper type prints.
Then what happens is you scrape the paper to get the spores off...and you scrape off paper too.
It's just a royal pain in the ass!~
