For years I have been teaching artists to digitally print on alternative surfaces. My exploration of these surfaces led me to printing on just about any substrate that would fit through my Epson art printers. Digital Printing is possible on all sorts of fabrics, papers, metals, recycled surfaces, beverage cans, synthetics, hand made amate paper and more. The catch to working with alternative surfaces includes having an art printer with a platen gap. In this article you will learn how to use digital imagery in your art with a simple process that does not require a special art printer.
