Intro to Photo Transfer

04.02.17, 1:00 pm

Join us and learn about basic ways to transfer an image into a paper, to finally make their own art work using this technique!

The process is easy and the resulting effect is quite nice. Any image can be used but those with high contrast will produce the best results. An acrylic transfer takes the ink from a photocopied or printed paper surface and makes it a part of a new surface. Can be a great way of creating visual art on its own or by adding interest to a painting or drawing. It’s also a popular technique for those interested in creating unique pages for scrap-booking. The resulting effect is a dream-like or “mysterious” work of art. Additional applications of media can be applied over the image for further embellishment, if so desired, since the image will be embedded into the painting.

This is free, no registration is needed and materials will be provided.

Bring b/w copy of images in different sizes (less than 8”x 11”). Consideration: the transferred image and text will be in reverse of your original image.
