Hi Jacek,

there was an interesting post by Marek last year, that described printing Carbon directly onto glass by exposing
through the back of a glass plate. Its in the archive here:

Carbon might not have been a process you had in mind, but its not too complicated when there is no transfer involved
and you can choose any colour you like.

I did give it a try, but because i used a UV bank my results were fairly fuzzy but well adhered to the glass. On as
side note, it also prompted me to have a go and coat some tissue as well, and ended up making my first carbon print.
(so thanks Marek if you read this!)

take care
(first time poster - avid reader)
