Instant transfer

For years I’ve been doing image transfers in two ways: 1)transferring the image onto clear contact paper with gel medium, and 2) dry gel transfers directly onto the paper.  The latter method requires several hours of drying time, if you want to ensure success.

But lately I’ve been experimenting with instant transfers using the thinner matte medium and found a wonderful video on the Golden website with tips on how to make this work. A black and white image transferred onto a painted surface creates a surprise contrast or a bit of mystery.  And now I can do it in a couple easy steps without waiting.  Rather than tell you the process here, I’ll invite you to check out the video and give it a try yourself! The Saturday group had great success with it.
