Over on the Scrap West Challenge Blog this week, our challenge was a Blog Celebration. For this we have to demonstrate a technique. I love image transfers and this is my demo of how I do it.
Equipment needed is a brayer (rolling pin or the back of a spoon will do). Gel medium of your choice, I have used Daler Rowney Matt Impasto Gel, a photocopy or printout of your chosen image and paper to transfer it onto – I have used a music sheet.Step 1
Squeeze gel onto your finger tip and spread like butter completely over your image.Step 2
Place image face down onto your paper and burnish with brayer for about 2-3 minutes, ensuring the paper is completely stuck down. Leave for 3-4 mins.Step 3
Lift a corner of the paper up with your nail and check image is transferred. You should then be able to remove the backing paper off the image.Step 4
You may have to dampen the image with a baby wipe and gently roll the remaining pulp off with your finger tips.Step 5
When all the backing paper is removed I rub a second coat of gel very lightly over the image to seal it.
If you wish to leave a comment on my blog I will raffle this piece off next Friday. Thanks for playing.
