Transfers and Altered Images with Acrylic Gels and Mediums by Chris Cozen.
Everyone is fascinated by the "transfer" process. Making something move from one place to another is a pretty cool trick by anyone's standards. Transfers allow for the seamless application of images and text on many surfaces, eliminating the cut edge and bumpy surfaces that are visible in traditional collage techniques.
There are so many ways to make transfers, but for the most part I will be dealing with the most benign of them - those created by or enhanced with Acrylic products. Whatever you thought you knew about transfers, or thought you could do with them, will be expanded by the techniques in these pages. My goal is for you to see the transfer process as another "tool" in mixed media techniques to use along with everything else you know.
I'll show you what you can do with your stash of acrylic paints and products, your home computer, and visits to your local copy shop. You will learn a few new things about working with transparent qualities of some of the paints and, best of all, how to handle those transfers that "fail".
This book is divided into two parts:
'The Process'and 'The Application'. To make the most of transfers, we will avoid working with non-archival products and stick to artist quality products in our adventure.
Once again, I'll be talking about Golden Artist Colors Acrylic products, so if you don't remember the specific qualities of a given product, go back to my first book, ältered Surfaces", and remind yourself. If you already have acrylic products from other manufacturers, use them. The results will be similar to what is described in this book.
I am ready to get transferring. Aren't you?
