    Steps to lifting a latent finger print

    1. Find the print 
    2. Put black powder on a plate 
    3. Use the brush to collect the powder 
    4. Lightly twist the brush in a circular motion on the print 
    5. Keep doing so until the print is visible and so is the minutiae

    7. Rub the tape down and lift up gently 
    8. Place the tape on a surface that makes the minutiae visible
