I recently saw an episode of Crafters coast to coast in which they made a tile coaster onto which they transfered an ink jet image. They printed a reverse image and then painted down the tile with HuhHuhHuhHuh??. Next they placed the image onto the tile and ironed it to transfer it. Once dry they submerged the tile in water and rubbed off the paper leaving the image on the tile. Does anyone know what medium is used on the tile? I have searched all over (including the show's website) and can find no information. Help!!!!!

Not sure what they used, but you could try this stuff called Lazer tran. I have some, but have never actually used it, so I can't offer any advice... But you could research online

Photo Emulsion

Is this what you're looking for?  It's not exactly the process you described, but it sounds like it'll work.  Instead of painting the surface with something, they printed the reverse design on "photo transfer paper." (No idea what that is, or where to get it...)

Hope that helps.

I believe it was an acrylic gel medium but I am not sure.  I may spring for some and try it.  I'll let you know how it turns out but if anyone out there knows for sure what the process is please, please, please let me know and save me hours of experimentation.  Thanks

The waterslide decal sheets seem like something that would work for you. (I know that's probably not what they used, but it might work.)

I have the episode recorded, but I can't watch it now. Once I get the chance, I'll get back to you.

I am trying to do this for my mom (with pics of her thru the years, she is turning 50!).  You make the collage, then color photo copy it onto photo transfer paper, then you put the cut out image in hot water and wait for it to uncurl (the link has all the explanations!)

I hope everything went well, i know this was a while ago!
