1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / Re: Brown Paper Bag, Acrylic Craft Paint on: May 20, 2010 09:56:10 AM
Hi, new to posting (longtime lurker, hope I'm not being annoying). 
Are you making artwork for a new cassette recording or using cassettes as holders for other things?  Just curious, we love tapes in my house - and nothing is cooler than a handmade mixtape cover. 

I think acrylic paint would work, as long as it isn't watered down.  The only touching issue I can think of would be thick paint cracking, so thinner layers might work better.  Also, your question reminded me of an artist I don't personally know but happily stumbled across and bookmarked - fantastic paintings on paper bags, his statement says it's acrylic paint.

Hope that helps, Laci

3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / Question - Xerox image transfers with acetone on: May 20, 2010 07:48:11 AM
Has anyone done this successfully?  I've tried on paper and with a lot of wishful thinking on pre-gessoed canvas - with poor results.  I used full strength (very toxic and pungent) acetone and a burnisher, but only got a faint transfer.  The copies were made with toner, I made sure to check first.  Any tips - or a tutorial I've missed?  Thanks.

These are so addictive!  I've made some featuring pictures I've taken, or some random images, but many are from a 1959 children's encyclopedia.  I use something called "Paper Glaze" to seal some, and other just some mod podge glitter details.  I don't have any ventilation in my studio space, so I've avoided using resin.  I cut a small piece of magnetic tape (the doublestick kind that comes in a roll) for the backs.  They'll hold a bit of paper, but mostly they're just decoration!
