Lifting prints from rough surfaces

Submitted by:

Kidder (PA) Township

When trying to lift a print from rough surfaces, Use ELMERS SCHOOL GLUE GEL. Apply the glue to the prints as if you were pouring a mold for a cast. In several hours come back and gently lift the dried glue and the print will come with it. Take note that the print will be inverted.
