Recently i Have been investigating transferring photos onto fabric using acrylic gel medium, it is an interesting process that i need to work on a little before i have it perfected.
I have discovered that hessian is trickier as the very course has a tendency cause the picture to rub off when removing the paper backing. Calico is more successful and more layers of medium work better. It is also important to let the acrylic dry completely before removing the paper.
ok… here is the bit where i get a tiny bit pretentious…but i love the london eye photo and the railings photo because i love the juxtaposition of the geometric modern subjects onto the textured natural looking fabric.
THe next step is to incorporate these transfers into larger pieces, i just need to decide exactly what i want to do. I am also going to do some experimentation with image transfer into other mediums, gesso, acrylic paint etc.
