Simple image transfer technique by Linda Donnelly ldphotography
I decided to try doing an image transfer but my first couple of tries were failures So I turned to the place where I seem to be able to learn many craft techniques, Youtube. I came across this video called , Range ; Claudine Hellmuth, Adirondack paint image transfer.
I had just purchased some of the metallic acrylics from Ranger so it seemed to be a good idea. I followed the instructions. I used a copper paint and two different images to transfer. They worked out great. I put a clear cover over the transfers and add some embellishments.
Here are the instructions: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R9mL5hk6ieQ
The second transfer: I did the second transfer with Omni-Gel. I painted the background of the tag. Then I painted the tag with the omni gel and put the copy down on it and let it dry. Then I soaked the tag in the sink filled with water. I gently rolled away the paper to reveal the image. I got a little to excited and rolled a bit off the sides of the tags. When the image dried I covered the tag with Inkssentials Crackle accents and let it dry. I added a gold ribbon to the tag and this is it.
Neither method was hard. I think I liked the paint transfer image the best.
