The image above was unsuccessful and with practice could have been great. Here are a couple quick suggestions to master using Transferiez – Image Transfer Media from inkAID.
The surface above is a fairly rigid piece of watercolor paper and needs enough solution to saturate the paper to create a successful transfer. It’s important to test a surface in a smaller size, get it right and then go larger. Visit kathyanneart.com/view-online-videos/ Browse various videos on using Transferiez and then give it a try. The photograph above shows an unsuccessful image transfer. I love this product and use it all the time with my art. Transferiez is one of my must have products in my studio.
Transferiez – Image Transfer Medium from inkAID is a great way to work with digital images especially when you don’t have a printer that will print alternative surfaces. Here is something everyone should know when working with image transfers. Each surface you use is different and you should alter your process slightly as you change surfaces.
The type of surface you transfer to will create different results depending on it’s porous quality. For metal type surfaces (nonporous) you will use a little less transferiez than you would for a more porous surface such as papers and fabrics.
Practice-if you do the exact same thing you will continue to get the exact same results. If you don’t like the results see what you can to to make it better. Take the time to get to know your surface. When you started to walk you didn’t get up and run across the room the first time. Any process you work with could take time to get familiar with and the more you do it the better you get.
