crafty_dame: yes, it's from acetate - isn't it fun?!  I have loads of them (in birds, trees, dragonflies).  They're super fab!  And I LOOOVE the circus theme.  I've been obsessed with circuses since I read Water for Elephants.


Here is the page bushbaby sent me.  She drew the dragon her self!!!  I was convinced it was a stamp, either way - very cool!

I love both of those!

What are silicone transfers??

Are these similar to cellulose transfers?  I posted a tut about that awhile back.

thanks you guys!

Colorfuldayz, go for it! i've been shrink art crazy lately! staZon ink works wonderfully for it.

silicone transfers are a technique i got from Collage Discovery Workshop by Claudine Hellmuth. it's kind of a cross between a packing tape transfer and the cellulose transfers (which i've never heard called that, but i've done those too! never with the laquer, just with a blending pen and with nail polish remover. the blending pen worked better!). that book has some really neat background and image transfer ideas.

you need a reversed photocopy like with the cellulose transfer (or not, the bingo card wasn't reversed, so you can see that the numbers are backwards), but you need water to remove the paper like with the packing tape transfer. you use brushable silicone sealant, press the image down face first, and then once it's dry you saturate your entire piece with water and rub the paper off. i had to get a hardware store in the US to special order the silicone for me, we don't have that exact kind in canada. it's very very cool, i love how it works out. i'd definitely recommend that you use a heat gun to help dry the silicone, that worked way better than the ones i just let airdry.

(gougeaway, i have to say, i'm SOOOOOO jealous of your craphound 5!!)




bushbaby, that page is so pretty! i'm not a big gold fan, but it totally suits it! your dragon drawing is amazing!

Wonderful dragon bushbaby! The background is lovely, the drawing is excellent and I love the tooth.

AM that made me laugh out loud! I am relieved that you draw the line at driving 12 hours to buy silicone.
