I am so excited to try this! I have been trying to find a copy of Crap hound and didn't find it on Amazon or ebay. Do you know where it is available?

You can purchase it here: www.readingfrenzy.com

Or if you live in the Portland, OR area - at Reading Frenzy's shop downtown.

It's a little pricey, but well worth it!
Thanks so much for the link...What a cool site/store! I think I may try to get the Church and State one. Thanks again  Smiley

I've been looking for a good Xerox transfer tute, and yours is great! Thank you, thank you for sharing!

Oh, and I heart Craphound, too.  Cheesy

My nail polish remover ends up removing the paper too, so i get a thin layer of paper over the transfer... odd.

I did some cellulose transfers for a swap not long ago, thanks to this fab tute. Anyway I discovered completely by accident that I got a much blacker transfer using the original print-out from my laser printer, instead of the photocopy. It did go a bit smudgy in places though so I had to be very careful. And I don't know if the transfer will be as durable.

Thanks for this awesome tutorial! This is the first thing I've made with this technique and it definitely has some flaws but I plan to make a lot more stuff and hopefully improve my skills.

Is it just me or do you have to press down really hard to get the image to transfer? it makes my arms so tired...maybe I'm just a wimp  Tongue

I had that problem, too.  And when I tried pulling the paper off, it pulled off the ink.... Embarrassed  I must just suck at this technique.

When you make shirts, does the ink hold up in the wash?

I had mixed results. On a green cotton t-shirt my print washed out after 2 washes. But on a pair of white cotton knickers (I tranfered an eye onto the front to freak out my husband Grin) the print has faded but is still there after maybe 6 washes. Hope that helps.
