Check Out This Excerpt From Image Transfer Workshop:


If there is not enough gesso/gel/caulk or if the medium has dried in spots, the image will not transfer. Make sure you have enough medium, and lay the image ink-side down immediately after applying it.

Though you will usually want most of the paper backing to be removed, sometimes leaving some on can have a wonderful effect. If the image wasn't rubbed down well when using magazine images, you will get ripples in your image. When the paper is rubbed off, you will get an abstract appearance. If this happy mistake doesn't suit your taste, there are two tips to get the wrinkles out: Use the spray bottle to mist the image before placing it facedown onto the surface. If wetting the image is too messy for you, simply try burnishing harder.

A Word From the Authors:

" We explore transfer techniques that use materials that you may have on hand, such as freezer paper and plastic wrap, as well as options that use copy machines and printmaking methods. Some of the techniques, like gel and gesso transfers, have been around for a long time and are still proven methods to get a consistent result. Some of the techniques that worked in the past, like water and ink-jet photo transfers, do not work well now due to changes in technology. We have found alternative methods and have even come up with some new variations on transfers. Some techniques render similar results, leaving you to wonder, ’Why would I use this method instead of that one?’ The answer may depend on the supplies you have on hand or a personal preference. We evaluate when a method isn’t working and provide tips for altering and enhancing your transfers." — Darlene Olivia McElroy & Sandra Duran Wilson
