I found a book the ither day that had all these ideas for making image transfers some of which i have tried.
so here goes a list of things that can be used to make image transfers.
Lighter fuel for magazine transfers Naz Dar Trans(silkscreen suppliers)
Oil of wintergreen( i have used this and it gives a lovely soft image. Be prepared though it has a very strong smell. Chinese medicine for lumbago and has that mentholly smell.. i liked it)
Oil of Lavender
Fabric spot remover (this makes sense)
Gum Turpentine( I have used this a lot and i love the look it gives very soft image, again a bit smelly and also toxic if not used correctly)
it was a photogrpahic book that dealt with experimental techniques. I picked it up because i have just got a polaroid land camera and it had info about polaroid transfers and lifts. But the rest of the book was a too much photo stuff i didnt want. So i sat down and wrote out the bits about image transfer. Our Borders shop is closing down adn getting rid of all stock. If they knock it down a bit more i might still buy it but it was $75 so a bit too much really.
I am looking at buying this book which I beleive is very good
'Image Transfer Workshop: Mixed-Media Techniques for Successful Transfers by darlene McElroy and sandra duran wilson.'
found it on amazon
I, thought that you had a recent mixed media book and that is why I asked. I am interested in buying such a book.
I once came across a photographic site that mentioned some of the materials that you did. I can't find the link but I remember that peppermint oil and normal Turpentine were included. I have no idea what Gum Turpentine is?
i have this book mo and am about to write a review. There isn't that much that you probably have NOT tried.
Here's a link to an out of print list http://used.addall.com/SuperRare/submitRare.cgi?author=&title=&...
Now that is cheaper!!!!!
I did, unsuccessfully.
I used an inkjet image and some polish but it just came out a blurry mess. I, think that this method works best with a toner based image (?) or photocopies, not inkjet.
It worked well or meusing inkjet and gloss photopaper
