bjeans,
I will definitely try to condition my plate as you suggest. In the mean time, I must tell you that even though it is recommended that the "final pull" for removing all the dried paint should be done with a thin layer, I tried a juicier layer, thinking that my paint was too dry and would not adhere to all the layers. This actually worked better, not PERFECT, but better than with the thin layer. I also don't know if I mentioned that my plate is the "permanent" homemade one, directly from " the frugal crafter" tutorial, and was thinking that maybe that has something to do with the quality and performance of the prints! I have noticed some shrinkage... my plate was 3/4" thick when I made it, and now, after 3 months, I see that it is only about 1/2" and the edges are a little shriveled and stiff! What do you think? And have you heard of this happening to the homemade plates? I have tried to contact Lindsay, the frugal crafter, but have not heard back....
