Gel Transfers

Amy has been doing tutes on transfers for weeks and finally I tracked down some gel medium and gave it a go.  Wow ... it works!!  Now I shouldn't be surprised because Amy gave a great tute with an added dose of humour to help you understand.  But, it actually worked when I tried.
The black and white scene is from an old book and has a lovely translucent quality and the coloured pic is an advertisement from a mag.  Different types of paper that both worked.

    aren't they fun?

    they just are.

    I am reaLLY glad you tried it.

    I swear, you'll toss the skins in a drawer and forget them, and then when you Least Expect to need it....
    you'll be thrilled that you did like 400 million gel skins.

  3. I've been having a go at these transfers too. Thanks Amy! Used Liquitex Gloss Gel Medium from Lincraft. Worked really well even though I only did about three coats. Was impatient but happy with the result.
