Real world version of what we have been doing digitally for years
Certain plastics like Silly Putty have
an ability to absorb ink very well.
Take a thin sheet of a Silly Putty-like
substance and place it on a piece of
printer formatted wax paper.
The end result would be a picture
that you can squash, streatch, nudge,
smear and even peel off and
over a textured background.
It works with most inkjet printers and
you get much brighter colors than
just gleaning pictures from

||I do think Silly Putty should be a standard office supply. Ever have to sign 50 papers? And they insist that it be your original signature and not a photocopy each time? Silly putty to the rescue.
Ever have to write "Does not reflect adjustments for new and late entrants" in pencil on 6 different printouts? Silly putty to the rescue.
||Probably wouldn't work too well with impact or laser printers but inkjet might be nice. For the other printer types, output to paper first, then transfer.
||Have you ever tried to get all of
that ink off the silly putty? Yes, it
does transfer ink but it keeps most
of it and then your putty is a
slightly darker color.
