printing caps and moisture
    #4323727 - 06/22/05 05:48 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

Is it normal for the cap to be shining with moisture on top during printing process? Seems like it'd be hard for spores to fall from such a moist cap. If no print within 24hrs(like last try) should I keep waiting, or will the cap be susceptible to rotting?

Well this is how I like to do it. I like to get my foil ready like this That way when the print is done you have these flaps to fold over.

I then get a half pint jar (wide mouth) and prepare it like this. I ditch the disk and silicone in a tyvek disk. This will allow the cap to dry a little as sits in the jar. (Which causes more spores to drop and prevents the cap from rotting. Will also allow the prints to dry once the mushroom cap is removed.)

Next put in the foil and cover with the lid. Put some foil on top and pc for one hour at 15 psi.

Now uncover and wipe off and your little print chamber is ready.

Now take the jar to your mushroom chamber and loosen the top but don?t remove it.

I like to put a pin in each of the mushroom caps I?m going to print.

Cut the shroom just below the cap and put it on the foil in the jar as fast as you can. Easy to do since the jar lid is loose.

Put it in a glovebox or where you like to do your work.

In 24 hrs open up and take out the cap by the pin (now we know what the pin is for) and put the cap back on. Let it sit for 24 hrs again to let the spores dry.

Once dry fold up foil and store in a cool dry place

I hate to clean my print foil with alcohol.

All creatures tremble when faced with violence. All creatures fear death, all love life. If we can only see ourselves in others, then how could we possibly hurt another creature?

It is always wise to print caps in a container - that has some sort of filter patch - to allow for gas & moisture exchange. In this case, to allow excess moisture to escape the container.

That way, caps don't rot & you get a fairly dry print.

Note holes with micropore tape over them, in the container lid.
That allows for gas/moisture exchange.
