2016 #4 Grunge Paste Transfer {by Kaz Hall}

2016 #4: Image Transfer 


Hi everyone Kaz Hall from The Little Shabby Shed here, joining you this evening with a post about Image Transfer. As a collector of old photographs, I’m always looking for ways to use the images in my art work. This technique is one of my favourites…..I never tire of seeing the process progress from start to finish. I love the effect plus it suits the style of vintage art that I love to create.
I’ve done this technique many a time using different mediums, with some great results but I really wanted to experiment and try it with grunge paste, here’s what I did…


Step One: You will need: A photocopied image, Grunge Paste, a palette knife, card, water spritzer, paint and paintbrush. Take a photo copy of your image (laser printed not ink jet) cut it to size. 


Step Two: On a piece of Kraft card apply a layer of grunge paste using a palette knife. You need to allow enough paste in the area where you want your image to go.


Step three: While the grunge paste is wet, take your photocopied image and place it face down onto the paste. Use your finger to burnish it, for best results you must let the paste and the image dry completely.


Step four: When the image and paste are completely dry, take a water spritzer and spritz generously the back of the photocopied image. Using your finger, gently rub away the paper pulp, your image will now be transferred onto the grunge paste


Step five: To add some colour to your image transfer, use a translucent paint ( I used Pumpkin Soup) and build up a wash around the image.


Step six: Stamp around your image transfer (I used the new Hot picks 1604 and HP1605) in Archival black ink.

HP1604
HP1605

When you have finished stamping, use your heat tool to dry the ink, then take some Matte Glaze and paint a layer over your image transfer to seal the image. You can then finish off your art work however you wish to.


You could always try applying the grunge paste to an already painted or stamped background, I think it would look really cool on a crackle background… there really are so many options to this cool technique.
I use Image transfer a lot, it’s so much fun to do, each time I try this technique I love the anticipation of how the end result will look. My only advice would be not to rush, it may take a couple of practises to get the look you are after but it’s so worth the wait!
Thank you so much for joining me tonight, I hope you will enjoy exploring the possibilities of Image transfer.

Welcome to the blog kaz, and thankyou for sharing such a cool technique. I am guesing lots of people will want to try this out. The beauty of working on Grunge Paste is that not only does it hold the transfer but it adds dimension and texture and if you want it really grungy you could sand it back. Brilliant! ~Darcy
