Good afternoon friends
I hope that this finds you well. I thought I'd share a quick little step by step today. Have you ever looked at your stamps and thought "That would be perfect if it was facing the other way"?
Well, a little while ago I was just sitting in the studio and I had an "I wonder if....... " moment with regards to gesso transfer so thought I'd give it a try.
Luckily I took some pics along the way so here is my step by step for transferring a stamped image using Gesso.
One thing to note before we begin; this technique is not going to necessarily give you a crisp image so it will suit a more shabby faded look.
Shall be begin?
For the next stage I forgot to take photos but it is clear enough. Spritz water onto the card and begin to rub the card away until you begin to see your image appear, keep applying water and rubbing but keeping it pretty gentle until you are happy with the result and have removed most of the paper away. (Don't throw the resulting soggy mass of rubbed away card into the sink but into the bin otherwise you run the risk of blocking the sink.)
What do you think? I'd love to see the results if you give it a go.
Enjoy the rest of the day and I'll catch up again soon!
