computer printed tissue

I would like to use my computer to print some lozenge tissue for some WWI sp400 planes. I've read some on the technique but have the following questions:

1) What types of covering can be/has been used, tissue, silkspan, others?

2) What type of adhesives are used to apply the covering?

3) How is the covering shrunk tight, since water can make the ink run.

4) Do you use any clear coat to protect the covering.

Thank you very much, Jim

I think the latest issue of the AMA mag had an article on this. Also do a search on Free Flight sites. I know somebody out there did a page about printed tissue on Nocal models.
