Does anyone know what type of photograph print works best for resin coating? I tried using a print from kodak express in a gloss finish and after applying a sealant and burnishing it lost some of the image.

I will try for matt finish and see how that goes...or am I best to try a laser or inkjet print?

I've never heard of a resin coating.

I hadn't either til recently...it is a bit of a process but it covers the image with a mirror glass finish hard as rock.  I do visual art and have taken some photos of my works to insert onto metal backings called bezels to make miniature artworks for key rings, pendants etc.
