Transfer Project

Last night I started to alter the transfer a little bit.  I bought some Faber Castell brush markers at Art Supply on Main and used them for the first time to creat the lettering.  The are permanent ink and lightfast and come in all different colors.  Next up I am going to draw a skeleton key in the dead space.

Scrapbook Paper Transfer

WOW!  I love the way this copy of scrapbook paper transfered on to a canvas board.  I painted the board a mustard yellow first, then used Liquitex Gloss Gel to coat the entire board.  I put mt copy of scrapbook paper face down into the gel and used a brayer to make sure it was really pressed into the gel.  Then I let it dry overnight and the next day I wet it and rubbed off the back of the paper.  I think it turned out great.
