Really nice job. Glad the clear coat did the trick.

got into this discussion late, but my thoughts, starting with your perch image, perhaps rebalance the color levels in photoshop increasing the contrast and density of blue and yellow channels(CMYK) also when you go to print the sheet, try tracking down one of the heavy docucolor 5000 or 6000 serries printers(one of the biggest office lazer printers in the office serries, can be roughly up to 15ft long, try the largest kinkos). they print insainly nice, and as close to offset as lazer printing gets. request sheets to be printed face side up(this prevents fliping and jaming inside the machine), also request it to be printed on either uncoated 187-220 weight or coated 187-220 weight. these will give you crisp images. you will also need the image as a digital file, as they do not have scaners(or atleast the newer ones dont). finaly if you have trouble and want to trade some cnc bodies for some printing help postmessage me as i need to do afew also.
my 2 cents

I have not tried this yet, but it appears to me that some of the colors bled a little on teh tissue paper espically around the head area. Is this a common problem with using tissue paper?

Well here is attempt number 2. This time I put the devcon 2 on the wood first. Then put the tissue paper on that. No aluminum foil!
And im much happier with the end result! Still not perfect. But well get it one of these times!
Any suggestions, on improvements?
