1  Re: using Acrylic mediums as a mode for transfers in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions by Dayeseye on: September 27, 2010 06:27:17 AM
Hi there! 

Okay, so first, are you sure you are using a laser image and not a ink-jet image, that would be one reason the ink is coming up.

as for the medium, apply directly to the right side of the image, I like to put one coat on lengthwise, dry, One coat on width-wise, dry, one more coat lengthwise, dry and another width-wise, dry.  So four coats going in opposite directions. after this is TOTALLY DRY wet the back/wrong side, of the piece of paper, really soak it pretty well.

Begin  rubbing the paper in a small circular pattern.  You can even use a toothbrush gently to get it going...GENLTY. 

Soon the paper will start to disintegrate and you will be left with a fairly clear and black image just on the dry Medium.  You can apply this anywhere.

You can also transfer your image directly to whatever you are working with.  See Here>>  http://dayeseye.typepad.com/art_every_day/2010/09/ink-jet-transfer-mini-tutorial-art-every-day-67.html  Although this is done with an ink-jet image you will get the same results with a laser copy.

 and here for a finished product with paint and all. >>  http://dayeseye.typepad.com/art_every_day/2010/09/free-to-collage-art-every-day-69.html

Hope this helps, looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

5  Nemo Mobile in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Dayeseye on: April 12, 2008 07:03:54 AM

Here is a picture, Albeit not a great one, of a mobile I made for one of my customers.  She and her husband waited to see if it was a boy or a girl, and were dead set on Nemo! and if you know there is nothing baby nemo out there so everything was handmade for this little one.  together we designed this mobile.  All of the fish are quilted and suspended from fishing line, so everything looks like it is floating....like in H2o

any comments?
