While the silicone fingerprint prosthetics presented a good recreation of the fingerprints, it was missing a crucial component – the same electrical properties as human skin.
Could have told you that before you started. :p

You need to add graphite to the silicon mix, they did here:

Next time on MyBB - will a fingerprint drawn on a piece of paper work? What about one carved out of wood? Stay tuned!

You guys needed to follow though better on a few things like with the prestik not separating from the glue for example, just spray the prestik with some nonstick cooking spray then mix the glue with graphite power from pencils, also once you have the mold you could smear lotion or Vaseline on the mold.

You only took it up one notch, it was like you couldn't be bothered to try to get it to work. Almost like you trying to prove it wont work.

Is this how you do it?
why not? expensive rings have been stolen that way.

or a less violent method, just wait for person to sleep, and open the phone when they are sleeping...
