Be Transparent

Here is a fast and fun way to add a layer into your art. You know I'm all about the layers!
First find an image in a magazine you want to use. Grab some clear packing tape, scissors and a spray bottle with water and some sandpaper.


 Put the tape onto the front of the image you selected and trim away excess tape.

Rub the tape down onto the image. Check to make sure there are no air pockets.

Lightly sand the paper.

 Mist the back with water and begin to rub the paper off.
When you have all the paper off, let it dry. You may then see a paper haze. To remove this, moisten your fingers and rub off the paper, like rubbing the fuzz off as peach.

Adhere the transfer, tape side up, onto your painting using soft gel. Let it dry for a day or two.

 You can even cut up and add more transfers.

When the gel is completely dry and adhered to the surface you can then pull the tape off and your transfer will stay.
