A hundred years ago, when I was in college, I did a lot of transferring of
found images into my work (a la Rauschenberg). I simply placed magazine
images face down on a surface, rubbed the back with acetone and the printing
inks transferred. I know the modern inks don't work by this method. But
does anybody know what does work?
I've tried the decal method by using coats of gel medium and rubbing the
paper away, but I hate the thickness, texture, and "plastic" quality that is
left.
I have researched Rauchenberg's techniques and know that the chemical he
uses is highly toxic and not appropriate for the classroom.
Does anyone know anything?
