Image transfer techniques are used by painters, illustrators, mixed-media artists, paper and book artists, designers, mail artists, and creative photographers. They allow you to reproduce a unique image from any source—an Instagram photo, a print, a book illustration, a drawing—and
apply it to myriad surfaces.
This book features five basic image transfer methods: packing tape, blender pen, acetone, gel skin medium, and acrylic transfers. After demonstrating how to use each method, the book showcases 19 step-by-step projects that cover a range of interests and applications. You will learn to make beautiful items: glass votives, postcards, stationery sets, pendants, wall canvases, banners, gift boxes, sketchbook covers, and more. The “Considerations” in each chapter give suggestions on how a single project can be expanded or adapted further.
Multiple surfaces are explored as a base for transferring—wood, fabric, paper, canvas, and book forms—leaving you well-equipped to use your own photography and images in your creative work. A wide array of illustrations and images from the projects are also included in the back of the book. A beautiful gallery shows the use of image transfers in a wide variety of high-end artistic works.
