This sounds so neat!
Quick question- you know those little kiddie coloring books? What kind of ink are they printed in? I would love to try this technique out, but I have an inkjet.

If it's on cloth can't you "set" it with a vinegar and cold water solution? I think you could set it on wood or whatever else with clear spraypaint, right?

can you please explain the "vinegar and cold water" solution? i would greatly appreciate a fixative solution!

i have a carbon fixative spray thingy that i bought for school to "seal" my carbon drawings, would that work?

i have a friend that mentioned, batik painting sealants (its a powder form thingy you have to mix with water) would work, but i havent tried anything.

Iron it first, then I just mix 1/2 a cup white vinegar and 1/2 a cup cold water and let it sit overnight. Then rinse with more cold water, and then let it dry. Usually I iron again after, but I don't know if that's really needed. You might need more white vinegar and water if you have a bigger piece of cloth...

cool so basically:

-get a pail
-fill it with half vinegar, half water
-put the bag i printed on into the solution and leave it overnight

right? just to confirm, cos i printed my drawings on my lil plain tote bag...

You probably want to iron it before, let it sit in the solution, then wash it by hand in cold water, let dry, then iron again...

hye i tried this techniques my own:



is it because of the picture. i photocopied the picture and use nail remover to transfer it. i pressed like a bodybuilder but it doesn't transfer.. is it because of the nail polish remover? or the photocopied image?

on the bottle of the nail polish remover , written
acetone 30%
alcohol 35.9%
lanolin oil 0.1%
dimethyl silicone 3%
perfume 1`%

is it because of not enough acetone in it?

trued using turpentine. it dont work. duh!
