Has anyone tried "Omni-Gel" for making tranfers? I just tried it and I'm have much better luck with it than I did with the Liquitex gel medium.

I haven't really used it much even tho' I bought the kit that Opie & Linda O'Brien sell (www.burntofferings. com) when I took a class with them several years ago.  I got all excited at the time and then realized when I got home that it didn't really fit with the work I was doing then, so it sort of sat around collecting dust - since I'm doing more altered art stuff these days I've used it a couple of times.  I agree that it works well, albeit a little time-consuming (I suffer from IGD - instant gratification disease.)

The Omni-Gel is a lot faster than the Liquitex gel medium, that's for sure! And it seems to hold better to the ink from inkjet prints...but laser prints work fantastic.

Now I just have to figure out what I want to use it for.

Do you mean will the grain of the wood show thru the transfer if you mount it on the disk?

It is transparent....

If you look at the first picture in this thread http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=120335.msg1244816;topicseen#msg1244816

the skull was made with an omni-gel transfer. You can see the texture and color of the paper behind it.

I love it. Once you get all the paper rubbed off the back, it looks really cool. I like that side better than the super shiny front side, though.
