The instructions, from my 1980's textbook, said to apply a thin layer of lighter fluid on a glossy magazine page, put drawing paper on top, and rub or draw lines from the other side of the drawing paper. The printing ink was to lift a little bit and the drawing paper absorb it, making a faint, mirrored copy of the page/photo/text on the drawing paper. I tried it with Ben's Zippo fluid with two types of paper to no avail, then with grape seed oil, to no avail.
I then spoke to a local print guy, who said in the 80's print ink used to be mineral oil-based, but nowadays it is vegetable oil-based, and couldn't think of any other solution to try.
But this particular magazine, The New Zealand Listener, makes my hand dirty whenever I have certain types of moisturizer on my hand, but I can't remember which. I'm thinking there must be something, before I resort to mineral turpentine again?
Have you done anything like this?
