As far as getting the fabric stuck in your printer, well yes
it can happen. In fact it happened a couple of times. But if
you make sure there are no strings around the top edges and
that the edge is ironed flat it should be ok. I also
discovered that it was better not to use the freezer paper more that once. Also only use one sheet in the printer at a
time. Sometimes the extra paper gets pulled through and what
a headache.
There are some places that sell the fabric on paper but it is
expensive and its just about the same thing.
I was thinking of taking digital photos of the students in my
senior class and using photoshop to grayscale and posterize
and then transfering it the the t-shirt transfer paper. We
could iron the transfers on a t-shirt and use acrylics to paint
them. Maybe even water down the paints and make it more of a
wash. But I'm not sure how the transfers will take paint.
Have to expereiment with this one.
