Always fun to learn new ways of doing transfers! Smiley I've done the chemical transfer before with paint thinner and it worked perfectly. But my favorite method is the tape transfer method. The best part is that you can make parts of your image see-through while others are opaque, so that when you layer your transfers, you can make some really nice effects. Plus, it's so super easy--you can make tons while watching your favorite tv show (that's what I do). Fun fun fun!

Thanks for posting  the site! I can't wait to try out some of those other methods.... Grin

How permanent are these transfers?  Can you use them on clothing (assuming they'd be carefully handwashed)?  

How about the tape transfer-- how well does sewing the tape onto cloth work?

Great tutorial-- very interesting!

Hi Susan!  Grin

Hmmm...I'm not sure how permanent those transfers would be on fabric. I think the chemical method would be the best one to try on material. I would just give it a go--you can only find out for sure by experimenting, right? Smiley But do it on a cheap t-shirt rag or something you don't mind getting ruined. You know, just in case....

I've never tried sewing tape transfers on fabric (I like to use them to create nifty collages in altered books and what-not). Probably wouldn't look the greatest, but then again, I've never done it so I could be completely wrong. I'd love to see some sample pics of any of these experiments...

i think that sewing a transfer made with packing tape would allow the packing tape to tear off, cuz i know that a little hole and a little pulling will pull tear it all too easily (ie when i pack boxes i never have scissors on hand and so i just poke a hole with a pen and rip across).
