There are tons of ways to do transfers. One of my favorites is to apply
several layers of matte meduim or gloss meduim on a photocopy or ink jet
print out. Once dry run under water and scrub off the paper. The image stays
on the matte meduim. It takes a while but looks very interesting when you
are done. You can also apply the matte or gloss meduim to the photocopy, etc.
and while wet flip it over onto another piece of paper, canvas furniture or
whatever. Once dry wet back of photocopy and scrub off...sometimes it is
easier to scrub off the paper with an old toothbrush. The imge will then be
transfered onto the paper, furniture, etc.... Yet another way is to take a
Design 2 marker- Grey #2 and turn your photocopy over, face down on another
piece of paper ( hot press watercolor paper works well) and rub the marker on
the back of the photocopy. The acetone in the marker transfer the picture.
There is also a small iron device that can transfer images....Some craft
stores it.
