It's best to use a glossy white paper like photo paper or magazine paper, but plain white paper works too. You should take a VERY fresh cap with most of the veil still intact and carefully remove the vail (if it stays with the cap when you separate it from the stem). Then place it gills down on the paper and put a glass over it for a couple of hours. You should get a nice OBVIOUS print. There's no trick to it.

I'll probably always do drugs, so that just contributes to the addiction to The Shroomery... It's a vicious circle of bliss. :tongue2:

Did you wait until the gills darkened with spores?
