I of my students in the colour block this year made entire garments by
peeling the image off colour paper and sewing the resulting bits
together!

On second thought.....

It hadn't occurred to me til this minute that Jeff, and perhaps Dave
too, might be thinking of RC paper, in which case I'd agree with Dave:
that slab of plastic on the back makes exposure difficult if not
impossible.

People are always saying that it's simple to peel the emulsion off the
back and use it separately, but I've never been able to do that
successfully myself.
