Actually, I find this a rather interesting question (or 7). Personally I stopped many years ago, and the main reason was that I found it impossible to get an even result. Plus I found I liked the non-ferrotyped surface better. Plus I put some RC paper in the dryer and destroyed the glossy metal sheet. :-( So, I could really only answer question #3.
