I used all kinds of paper that looked like baking paper, wax paper, etc with shiny non-stick surfaces.
They all stuck like crazy when used with dry mount sheets.
Okay, thanks. I'm going to dry mount a print for the first time in a few days. I've bought mount board and dry mount tissue, only waiting for the press (a t-shirt press).
When I got my press and without a release paper, I went to a local frame shop and bought a sheet off of a shop owner so I can get started. It's reusable for dozens of times. Since then, I bought a roll of it but still using the orignal sheet. It's expensive but you don't need much of it. I would suggest doing it the right material....
I will buy release paper soon, but it will be a few weeks before I get it. Just curious to start testing.
Baking paper worked, so then I can use it until I get the release paper. But I have to find something to put between the press and the paper, because the press made som marks through the paper. Maybe some mat board or something similar.
Rather than buying a whole roll, you may be able to buy a couple of pieces from a local picture framer. One of the best things we did was get a wholesale account with a local framing supplier. You can get all of your finishing supplies at very low prices. In Georgia, a roll of the release paper is about $60 wholesale.
EDIT: Classic case of not reading the rest of the thread before replying!
Be sure to keep these mat boards clean. Any particles caught in it will leave marks on the print.
