[teacherartexchange] Tape transfers

Hi Michal,
I might have missed part of this thread. I remember doing tape
transfers literally back in the last century!

What I don't remember is what you do with the tape after the magazine
picture has been transferred to it. Any reminders would be greatly
appreciated! Links to student work, pictures etc. would be great too!

Cool! I've never thought of trying it with packing tape. Thanks!
