    This is about how to make your own film sheet for a light stick <3



    https://mikumerch.com/collections/featured/products/copy-of-light-stick
    You know how from the link there you can get a character set for your light stick. But then you can't decide which one to use? Well, I just suddenly came across this video a few days ago and I thought I could use this method on an image with all 6 characters for my light stick! Or for something else entirely. But unfortunately it's in Japanese with no translation, so that's what I'm asking help here for. I really just need help having the instructions and materials translated. And the results we see at 9:00 is what any of us would want. Mine would have color like the one on the right.

    Now, after watching it many times I understand the lamination film, short plastic ruler, cutter, and little bowl of water. But because my film would have color, what still need to know is --
    - what kind of paper is being used
    - using a blow-dryer, is it cool or warm air
    - do you or do you not have it completely dry when you place the other sticker sheet on it

    Thank you, I'd really appreciate it ~__^

    Or you could do it the homebrew PCB style: print directly to a clear film. There are films for laser and inkjet printer available. Since you are "displaying" the image rather than blocking lights, thinner toner/ink won't hurt (in fact they make the final product even better).

    Or, if you just want backlit images, you can even use tracing papers.

    Yeah, I know. I understand what you're explaining, and I've googled about doing it that way too. It was due to the fact of using an inkjet printer (which is the kind I have) on clear film, how the ink would look on it, the ink drying on the film, etc. That I just wanted to see if I could get the method we see on the video translated before trying it this way. But still, thanks for what you said ^__^
