I used citrasolv to transfer a laser print of clematis onto a t shirt, (I needed to cover a stain!)






Pardon the watermark, it's was still wet when I took the picture.

Thanks for looking

It looks good. How does it feel??? I mean the transfer - it is "plastic-ky" when you touch it, or you can feel the fabric??? you know ....

I think that what transfers is the toner which is a powder, so it just feels like fabric.

That looks really pretty. Does the citrasolve help it to be permanent, or will it wash out?

Do you have a link about the transfer process?  I've never really heard of that.

And the shirt is cute, which is why I wanna know how it works.  Naturally. Wink

I searched the boards and found this;

 

Anyway, I do this a lot with Citra Solv (I like the fruity smell) and a laser printer.  I have heard Xeroxing works as well, but my one attempt to do a color Xerox did not work.  Basically, print your picture on a laser printer then lay it print side down on your t-shirt or whatever.  Using a paintbrush, liberally brush Citra Solv or your solvent of choice all over the paper. Then rub rub rub with the back of a spoon.  I like to tape the picture down to keep it from sliding.  As you rub, you'll see the picture on the paper get grayer.  Check from time to time to see how it is going, and when you are happy with the result you are done!  I find it works best the more dark black you have in the picture to transfer.  I always let mine sit to dry for at least overnight and iron over them in an attempt to heat press.  My oldest one is more than 8 months old and has had little to no fading.  It also works best on flatter material. 


I basically did what she said but I used a laser print instead of a xerox.

this is amazing......

I've been looking for something like silk screening that isn't so time consuming.  THANKS for posting!  Your shirt looks awesome!! 

I just wish I had a laser printer, I only have an inkjet...Perhaps they have some cheap ones on ebay...Grin

I can tell you, Fall is composed of

1 part dead fish smell
1 part wet leaves
1 part arctic chilled air (not winter chilled variety)
2 parts crunchy walking
a pinch very cold rain
some apples you picked yourself
a few very still moments
a good deal of inner reflection
