I did this when I was in school, just to see if I could make it work. I did, but I never used it for anything. It was an interesting exercise though. I'd have to dig up my notes but I do remember having some staining issues with the paper. I recall that I overcame that, but I'd have to look to see how. I also remember staining my fingers and fingernails being careless one night. I'd avoid that, it took weeks for the stain to grow out of my nails.
