For making the termofax screens— Please not that continuous tone prints or copies of black and white photographs WILL NOT WORK! They do not reproduce well in this medium unless they have been converted to a halftone dot screen! Please be sure the art is your own, or a “free to use” piece of line art. (for example: from Dover Archives)
