I tried a couple of methods from old books: One was pure nightmare, and left the print in shreds. As I recall it used shellac as the binder, but it didn't "snap" off the aluminum as promised... it only left in scraps.
The second was more successful.... as I recall a coat of wax which just had to be warmed a tad.... but that's from memory. I'll check. (I think it's in either P-F #8 or #9 but I'm supposed to be rushing out now, so don't stop to check -- lest I end up in the studio instead.)
