I think i own every book I could find on image transfer Wink for some reason I've always loved the idea of putting images on a variety of mediums...

I also love doing handmade/thoughtful gifts and when I saw those marble coasters with images on them for nearly $40 at a local boutique store, I knew I could make them.

I wont bore you with the detailed tutorial as i have that on my blog here.. but I wanted to share.. I love how they turned out Wink

but I used Mod podge as the transfer medium, lazer copied (toner lazer) images, then a krylon matte finish clear coat on top of botticino marble tiles.. i've given 4 sets of these now for gifts (with a variety of images). and each person just loves them!

here's some pics:



what do you think? anyone else do these? any other methods you've tried? I was thinking of using acetone next to see how that turns out. Smiley

Acetone is good, goofoff another. I transfer to fabric or run the fabric itself (with freezer paper) through my laser, but it needs a cleaning.

Goof Off is very much like acetone. Print - place print down on fabric- use a q tip to apply over image part - use a spoon to burnish in. You must do this with gloves, mask, and open windows or better yet outside. heat set when absorbed with an iron. I understand turpentine works the same way. A tip is to tape the paper down to the fabric so it doesn't move. I love this method.
