Hi All,

hi guys,

The recipe is simple:
PVAc glue (school glue/white glue/wood glue) & black ink (chinese ink/permanent marker).
Just mix 20 g PVAc with 80 ml water then stir until dissolve and create suspension. Then add a drop of ink 0.1 ml then stir until the suspension become grey-is colour.
Apply to your Mylar with thin coating.
I try to post pdf version in this forum but looks like difficult due to big size file.

Sorry to say, but another layer over the original coating would not do anything except added mass...
