Gillian Allen - I have been using T shirt transfers printed with my inkjet from scans from various sources. These were pressed onto transparent clay which had been put through the pasta machine on its thinnest setting (use wax paper) then baked for 15mins at 230 in the oven. The paper peels off and the transfer is applied to a cracked silver leaf covered black clay whith a light coat of fabric glue to stick down. The top is given 3 wet n dry sandings to bring out the transparency.
She creates these leaf prints by pressing fallen leaves against paper under pressure and heat. The colors of the leaves transfer to the paper. No dyes, inks or paints are used. All of the color comes from the leaves themselves.
DIY Candle Image Transfers. Print your image onto your tissue paper. Place it onto your pillar candle ink side up. Take a piece of wax paper and wrap it around your candle. And take your heating tool and heat the wax paper.
transfer tech: Now that the base color was down, it was time to start adding texture. I decided it needed some transferred print so I tore a page from a book, slapped on some Gel Medium and placed it on the journal. The key to making this work is giving it a good rub down with a bone folder.
