When a suspect leaves fingerprints behind at a crime scene, investigators use a latent fingerprint kit to collect and store the prints. They use their expertise to determine which powder to use.
The Printing with Magnetic Powder ForensiKit will teach you how to identify which surfaces are best suited to magnetic powder, how to use magnetic powder to reveal latent prints, and how to preserve those prints.
Dusting with magnetic powder can be less messy than classic powder, which makes it an excellent choice for beginners.
