This is the tutorial!
I got out my old nemesis, the GEL MEDIUM.
And decided to try yet another image transfer.
Then I copied this sweet bird from Karen over at
I just used my ink-jet printer....
Then, I spread a good layer of GEL MEDIUM on top of the print.
Do NOT, not, NOT get GEL MEDIUM on the back side of your paper!
You want in only on the print.
Put it face down on your project.
Burnish with a bone folder.
As you rub the paper, if you go to the edges and the GEL MEDIUM squeezes out, wipe of the bone folder before making another pass over the transfer image.
(That's so you don't don't don't get GEL MEDIUM on the wrong side...)
This time, I didn't wait for the image to dry. After rubbing it really well, I slowly peeled off the paper to reveal my little bird:
I know, right????
It's like a present unfolding!
If you see chunks of it not coming off, try laying the paper back down before pulling it all of and go over it again with the bone folder.
It might help.
But remember, you are working with GEL MEDIUM, so it's all up for grabs.
Here, the image didn't quite come clean, so I gently rolled the top layer of white paper off of his tail.
I think birds like clean tails.
I think he's o.k. with a chunk of it missing.
'Cause it's clean.
I was pleased to see that it worked over the side of the box as well.
If you click on the image, it will enlarge.
Now on to clean up the room.
Sorry. No tutorial for this, other than get the trash basket out!!
