You might even try Rubber-Gelatin Lifters, such as the ones used for lifting footwear prints in dust. They are very low-tack. Cut little sections of the big piece to fit the size of the latent prints you have developed. If you use the ones with the transparent backing, you should be able to see through them well enough so you don't have to deal with a reverse (left to right) image.

Try frosted lifting tape. The adhesive doesn't seem to be quite as "strong" as the clear plastic tapes. And you might also try going a little easier than normal on working the tape down over the latent print. Just concentrate on the area of the print and "easy does it. Usually works for me.

I process CD's with cyanoacrylate. Dust them and sometimes photograph when there is not too much difference in the colors of label of the CD. When I lift the latent, I sometimes lift off part or all of the label. This makes it difficult or impossible to see the ridge pattern when placed on a lifting card. Plastic tape is the worst. Using the normal lifting tape I get better results. I looking for a "weak" adhesive tape so just the powder comes off. Any suggestions?
