    You need to warm up & dry out the mat board first, otherwies you get problems with water/steam and the board can stick to the print surface.

    When using matt adox paper, i get strange figures on the surface because the baking paper is getting structures in the paper due to the heat and these while pressing can be seen by the eye as a more shiny area.

    Is there a better way?
    First of all, one should use silicone-release paper. But don't think: the wrinkles disappear. They might show up with silicone release paper too. The wrinkles are a result of too much water in the materials, like the board, photographic paper etc. Therefore, one should remove the surplus of water first. To that end, I heat the materials first and let them cool outside the press first, to remove the moist. Further, therte are different qualities in the siliconen-release paper. Some give the wrinkles easily, others less. The siliconen-release paper can be obtainede from Cami, Oostende, Belgie.

    Someone mentioned to use teflon backing foil which is used to cook for example meat without any additional oil.

    Anyone experiences with this?
