This is one of the coolest techniques I know and I LOVE, love, love the images. This is similar to solvent transfers on fabric but this is easier and without smell.
I have added "Stamping" as a technique here even though I have been doing a lot of stamping along with each technique for the day. Stamping is a big technique both in paper as well as fabric.
This is a print of a magpie printed on the shiny side of a piece of freezer paper. The shiny side is the plastic coated side. This can only be done with an inkjet and not a lazer printer. You can see the wet ink sitting on the surface of the freezer paper.
I use a small finger pump sprayer to get the spread wet with water. You don't need it dripping but you want an overall wet surface.
I laid the print ink side down on the paper and used a bone folder to "press" the ink onto the damp paper.
I love the texture and soft visual quality of these prints.
I thought I needed a bit "more" and decided to add some lettering using stamps and printers ink.
Done and dried. Such a lovely image.
OK, so I couldn't stop. This was a beautiful sunrise over the ocean. Note to self: Use brightly colored pictures with minimal black
This is a picture my brother took at the shoreline. This is where I do my morning meditation.
