Photo Transfers with Creative Medium

With Creative Medium and PHOTO Elements (or your own toner-based image), transfer an image onto SHEET Metal for a pendant, embellishment or mixed media project.

 

 


Step-by-step instructions

  1. Apply an even coat of Creative Medium to the SHEET Metal with an Inkblusher or Brushstix applicator.
  2. Trim PHOTO Element to size, then place face-up on a flat surface.
  3. Gently lay the SHEET Metal piece (coated side down) on top of the PHOTO Element image.
  4. Turn project over so the back of the PHOTO Element is facing up. Use a Mini-Squeegee with mild pressure to eliminate any air bubbles, working from the center outward. Use very gentle pressure only as the Creative Medium needs to remain in the sandwich to affect the transfer.
  5. Allow to dry completely, minimum 15 minutes.
  6. Submerge project in warm water; soak for a minimum of 15 minutes, until the paper has become transparent and the image is visible.
  7. Remove from water. Using gentle pressure, begin to slowly remove the paper backing by rubbing your fingertips across the paper. Repeat soaking process if necessary.
  8. Allow project to completely dry before applying a finishing coat of Creative Medium.
