i love art history and had the absolute most brilliant art history professor in college. during my 17th & 18th century european art history class, he introduced me to the different print series francisco goya did, including the disasters of war and los caprichos.
i've been interested in trying iron-on transfers after browsing the boards here, and these were my first attempts at the technique. and i love how they turned out!
iron-on transfers were avery brand, ironed onto 100% cotton muslin purchased for $4.45/yard. (i have a TON left over.) i just wanted to turn them into fabric squares, maybe eventually mount them and frame them. after they were ironed on, i measured and marked them on the back to keep the front clean from pencil lines, and cut them out with my late grandmother's sewing scissors.
