This is a tutorial I published on my Hebrew blog last year, and I'd like to share it here as well.
Image transfers are lots of fun, you never know what the outcome will be, and you can play around with them afterward, creating interesting new images for your journal and layouts.
This is no doubt the simplest transfer. I have a few blender pens, but the only one that works for me is Chartpak blender pen.
Here's what you do:
Print your image in a laser printer (won't work for inkjet):
Put your image face down on another piece of paper/fabric:
Start painting the back of your image. As it wets, you will be able to see your image through the paper:
You can lift a little, to see how it's coming along:
And... you're done! tada! This is the transferred image:
I also tried transferring images from magazines. the only ones that worked were from "Time Out" magazine. I have no idea whether their paper is the same quality all over the world, but Time Out Tel Aviv transfers really nice images:
And this one is from a seventies Burda, I was impressed!
Over here I did a collage of sorts with a few transfers:
And a small piece with image transfer and stamps:
What I found out was that it is impossible to transfer quality glossy magazine images. You'd have to look for magazines with lower quality paper, for the ink to transfer.
I really enjoyed the process, and there are many possibilities: transfer on paper, fabric, wood, domino cubes, and more.
Enjoy, and let me know if you've tried it!
