http://www.igage.com/mp/wpp/igage_weatherproof_paper.htm#_letter (Letter 8½”x11” 50 sheets 10mil) Ink jet and laser printer compatible This weatherproof paper is waterproof and made out of thin plastic. It has a matte texture on both side to allow the ink to stick to the paper. This matte texture is a problem when embedding in resin since it creates hundreds of micro air bubbles that you cannot pop. So, to avoid this problem, you must coat the paper with a shiny sealant/glaze, to get rid of that matte texture before putting it in resin. Any sealants will work such as mod podge, acrylic spray, clay glaze, floor varnish, etc. I find the acrylic spray to be the easiest and the quickest way to take care of this. Usually one coat will do.
