    Image Transfer - US Packing tape

    Hello

    I keep seeing references to image transfer using what the Americans call Packing Tape, ie you stick it on the photo, put it in water and then hey presto you have a sheer image (believe me when I finally get to do it, it won't be like that at all!!!)

    Any ideas what the UK equivilant is, and if so where I can source it from, I am going a bit new technique crazy at the minute!

    Thanks

    Jane

    you just need clear parcel tape - you can get it from WHS, Staples, any good stationers really

    you can even use ordinary sellotape, but then of course you're restricted by the width

    welcome to the wonderful world of image transfer!

    Can you explain what you do with it?? I print onto acetate or Safmat, so is it just doing the same sort of job?

    cover image with the sticky parcel tape... i ten dto use the wider rolls you get at b&q, rub it well all over with the back of a spoon, plunk in a shallow dish of water, leave for a few minutes until the back is well soaked.. now start rubbing away... until the carrier paper is completely rubbed off...

    you now have a transfer image.. works best with catalogue/magazine/photo images

    or anything from a toner based photocopier (NOT inkjet)

    Don't know how well you can see it, but the woman's face on the top right ATC attached is a packing tape xfer from a standard b&w photocopy (stuck over alcohol inked acetate):

    hi
    you can do this with Jo sonja all purpose sealer as well. As before not good on inkjet prints.
    just paint several layers of the sealer onto the print, at least 5. ( cross hatch different layers) and then spray back of print with water and rub away the paper.

    this method does not restrict size of image.

    you can then put the decal onto canvas using the all purpose sealer as well

    ohh yeah... ordinary pva glue works as well... though you have to have a bit of patience... put several thick layers of pva on the image and leave to dry between coats (plunk on radiator/in airing cupboard to speed it up)... the pva will go milky while the thing is soaking, but will clear again..

    I even did it with diamond glaze... but that does tend to get softer again.

    Golden gel medium works a treat too

    and I've recently bought some Stewart Superior transfer ink which works wonders with inkjet prints

    there are SO many different image transfer techniques - that's why I said welcome to the wonderful world earlier!

    packing tape xfers are one of the easiest though, so a great place to start
