One of my students has this pencil case with an all-over graphic on it, and for some reason, I really like it.

So, I have this red fabric that is just itching to get used up. I think I'm going to try this technique on the fabric, and then make it into something...besides a pencil case...I think...

How exciting!!

I am going to try this this afternoon, but just a question first. Once you have transferred an image from the original once, could it be used to transfer a second copy, or would it be best to get a fresh copy and use that?

once you transfer an image once it gets kind of wet and ripped up, so generally, you'll need an image for every transfer.

An additional thing to use is we did this in my book arts class using Prismacolor colorless blender markers instead of the laquer thinner or nail polish remover. I've done it with the nail polish remover and I find it not as reliable and more messy than the marker. A it more expensive but less mess and more versatile.

Thanks so much for this !!!!

I just tried it on a dark pink tee, and it looks like it worked great.
Here a pic just after the transfer:

I LOVE it, it looks all vintage and washed up, like it has already been loved for a long while.
I washed it just after that and it looks like it didn't fade too much but all the white chemical marks looks gone. I'll cross my fingers and post another pic once its dry.

PETITE - It looks awesome!  Great job!  What type of chemicals did you use?  I've only ever used lacquer thinner.  I'm learning after posting the tut that there are TONS of different variations. 

Love it, good work!

Thanks GougeAway !
I used lacquer thinner too. I tried to experiment a bit with nail polish remover first but it doesn't work for me.

Does anyone in the Uk know where i can buy lacquer thinner? I can't seem to find it in any shop!  Embarrassed

Is it ok if i just use white spirit? You see it says it can be used as a paint thinner.
