transfer of drawing

Did you have a laser or ink jet copy made?

I used a laser print because they don't bleed.

You can use an ink jet as well. I just find the transfer a little softer with the ink jet and it does bleed a little if the image is dark

Transfer

I have had a print made of my drawing. You mentioned cutting it in half to make the transfer process easier. Should I apply one half and let it dry before I add the second piece.

Yes, that is the easiest way to do it.

That works the best.

I did the transfer and was

I did the transfer and was amazed at the results! It really frees me to experiment with the painting and not worry that I will lose the original. I can always try again. Now that the holidays are over I am ready to paint. I am an oil painter but would like to try the acrylics. When you go in with white at the beginning, do you use medium or water and very little of
either?
Thanks. From facebook, it looks like you are enjoying a lovely vacation.

Hi Bonnie

I don't use any medium with the white and very little water. I like to get a thick amount on there so that I can manipulate it. Look forward to hearing and seeing your results!

A few more questions. :)

Is there another name for the marks all pencil? When I put that into the search engines at Dick Blick I do don't get any results. Could it have another name?
I love the lace that you use with the joint compound in the forth painting. Do you have any idea where we could purchase lace like that or similar ?
You mentioned purchasing a soft brush. Is there one at Dick Blick that you could recommend to me? Thank you s2271o much for all your help with this!

I love to collect vintage lace. I shop thrift stores and usually can find some beautiful finds. You can try the fabric stores but I think you will find the vintage lace much nicer.
Here is a brush I use all the time
