Getting just the right amount of image from an inkjet transfer is proving a very complex ………and somewhat frustrating…….challenge. Have tried the gel medium-on-substrate approach, which left lots of nice gel medium embedded in the original photo, an interesting look but not much use as a transfer! tried spraying glossy photo with water….that has been a bit more interesting, getting a nice blurry image as the colours run quickly especially from cheap photo paper. The clearest images came from a transfer from a sheet of overhead transparency, which made me very excited……but alas the printer didn’t like the process, and after the first one [seen below with 4 moth images] it refused to repeat the experience, but instead made the ink come out too wet on the transparency and the image impossible to transfer. Best nice-blurry results so far are from thin copy paper print-out onto thin copy paper using Transfer ink. I also really like the image that is left behind on the original print-out after this process.
Any suggestions from Out There would be welcome! in the meantime shall keep experimenting…….results so far are shown below:
