Picture Transfer Plea :)

9 posts in this topic

Hi Ladies! I came up with an idea today and have to have it done by tomorrow! LoL I am wanting to transfer a picture from a copy done with a copy machine. I can't find my instructions, but that's ok ...

they always ask for a medium gel. Would that include modge podge??

Help! LoL

you can use the packing tape transfer technique for that, if you have packing tape, (clear mailing tape.) Basically you just stick the picture to the tape, burnish it real good, then put it in water for a short while. Once the paper is softened, you rub it off, and the picture is left on the tape.

If you want to use a technique that calls for gel medium, then that's what you need to use. Modge Podge isn't the same thing.

If you need me to dig out the directions for using gel medium, just say the word. I have them here.

Leslie - I tried it lol what a mess that was ...

Jan - That's the one I've been looking for!! THANK YOU!! As for gel medium, I have the technique, just not the right gel medium. When I get back I'll see if the base scrapshop has any. :)

Thank you, Dee!! Jan just shared in a later posting. I'm gonna try that in a few minutes. It's only 12.30 am LoL

PS: Count the days until that altered mail gets to you LoL I can figure out how long it takes then ... I know I am going to space, but going to keep a note up to remind me.

I know a technique. You need a photocopy of the image in black and white (not laser). Then you put it over the surface with the image down and rub it with thinner (not turpentine) or acetone. I used this technique to transfer a drawing on a shirt and then I painted it. I also used it on a cardbox.

Bye
