Mixed Media Art Questions


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hi Milliande,

Day 17 was just wonderful! I got to see how nicely ink blends into wet white paint and like you, I love the look of grungy photo transfers, so this was an exciting spread.

I am used to doing gel transfers with color photocopies or magazine pages, but have heard that using ink jet prints on paper is useless because the color runs. It was hard to tell in your video if you used an actual photograph, a color photocopy or a different print media with which to do your cupcake transfer. Can you tell us what you did?

Curious & grateful,

Susi

~ Hi Susi ,

glad you loved the cupcake art journal prompt ..

~ I took a photograph of a cupcake cake stand display .. then uploaded it onto my computer...

~ from there i increased the saturation and brightness /contrast to produce an image rich in color and contrast as those tend to transfer better with gel medium transfers

~ I then printed the cupcake photo out on my inkjet printer ( the photo can be freely dowloaded on the cupcake art jouranal prompt page so you can play .. http://www.milliande.com/art-journaling-art-journal-prompt-january-day-17.html

~ I print it on ordinary copy paper and the result is as you saw in the video

hope this helps

♥ milliande

Inkjet...what a revelation!
by: Susi Richardson

Okay, I'm not sure just why I'd been operating all this time under the erroneous delusion that you need photocopies, magazine or laser printed images for doing gel transfers, but THANK YOU, Milliande, for throwing the door wide open and adding inkjet into my mix! Vastly more convenient...ahh, the creative possibilities are endless!
