Transfer drawings

I make transfer drawings from digital photos I’ve taken. I print out a digital photo in standard inkjet inks on cheap paper and put the image face down onto good quality art paper on an etching press. I quickly rub cheap nail-varnish remover (good quality ones don’t work) onto the back of the printed photo and put several sheets of tissue on top and put it through the etching press. This transfers the image to the artpaper but in the process the colours change considerably and also randomly so you don’t know what you’ve got until you peel back the tissue. Then I draw on top, using my many sketchbook drawings for reference.
