In art school we learned to do transfers by putting several coats of gel medium over a newspaper image. Each thin layer would have to dry before putting on a new layer. After it was all completely dry we had to run the image under warm soapy water and painfully soak away the image until all that was left was the ink soaked into the gel medium, which would then have to dry over time. That’s only if you were lucky enough to have it not fall apart into a soggy mess, which always happened to me. Fast forward to today and to TAP Transfer Artist Paper by Lesley Riley and I can say we’ve come a long way baby!
I used TAP on two pieces which appeared in Lesley’s TAP book Link found here on Amazon.
I love the ease of using TAP and the precision one gets. It helps to learn some nuances for using it by taking Lesley’s class here. TAP is versatile and you can use it on fabric, paper, wood, copper and more. It’s the best inkjet sheet I’ve used for transferring. If you don’t have an inkjet printer, you can draw on it and transfer your original artwork.
Lesley is generously offering a Giveaway of her Online Tap Class, to one of my readers and is a $45 value! You can find more info about the Class HERE. She’s also giving away a 5 pack of TAP and that link is HERE.
Please leave a comment on this post telling me how you’d use TAP and there will be one winner for the free class announced in the comment section of this post on July 10.
