I got a dunco easel 30x40cm. Has anybody some instructions how to use it the proper way?
I'd say it's straight forward. Lift the top (it should stay open), place the paper in a slit and close. Adjust the blades as needed.
Like ath says, it's pretty straightforward. A word of warning though. The blades can be bent out of alignment if they're adjusted with the easel closed
"Place the paper in a slit"
That's where i get lost.
How can i place the paper against it, because the plastic items in the slit are at the same level as the board itself.
So i do not have something where i can place the paper against before closing the frame.
Are the plastic items in the slits there just for storage/shipping - are they supposed to be removed?
I also send dunco germany a mail.
They (stil exist) replied immediately and helped me with a manual. (Very friendly people!)
I now know that the slit must be used to stick the paper in.
For what it's worth, Tim Rudman at a class he was teaching here in Australia told us that the Dunco was either the best or among the very best that are made (I forget which). I tried to get one mailed to me here but no luck.
If you are still looking, Silverprint in the U.K. sell them. The owner Martin Reed is a big fan of them. Won't be cheap of course but I am sure you know that
