For printing you will need wax paper. You can buy in stores where goods are sold to offices. Cut a piece of canvas the size of A4. Determine where she's wrong and the front side. Cut a sheet of wax paper of the same size. Attach it to the canvas and align the slices. Glossy paper side in contact with the underside of the canvas. Smooth it all with a warm iron. Need to stroke to until the canvas is saturated with wax. Trim edges, but do not attempt to separate the layers.
