Don't you love the hats?This is a copy of a photo I took. It worked better for me than the magazine page and is on a sheer curtaining fabric. It is done with Citrasol-a cleaning product-used full strength and also needs to be done outside with a respirator. It was hard work-lots of rubbing-not my favorite way, but it can be left and finished at a later date.
These are xylene transfers. It is an architect's pen and needs to be used outdoors with a respirator and solvent type gloves-yes, they are different. Xylene melts the others and also plastic. I worked on a corregated cardboard which gave the vertical lines. If you didn't want the lines, you would use plexiglass. It was easy to do and gave good detail. These were copies of old photographs of my parents and grandparents.
For 2 days last week I was in a workshop presented by Wendy Huhn. If you ever get to take a class from her, I highly recommend it. We learned so much about how to transfer images. Here is the first installment of my samples.
Lastly for today, a rubberstamp I carved using a Dover Publication image. I've carved stamps before, but Wendy's hints made it so much easier to do a detailed one. Stay tuned for more on the workshop.
