This is a two-session online workshop, March 22 & 24, 2021.
Students will learn how to transfer laser prints onto various surfaces such as canvas, paper, and wood.
The instructor will demonstrate how to prepare laser prints using matte and gel medium, and how to layer surfaces with acrylic paint onto prepared surfaces. Emphasis will be placed on continuous experimentation and combination of techniques.
Students will leave with the ability to continue working with these processes, which they can incorporate in future art projects outside of class.
NOTE: Images printed by inkjet will not work for this process. If you are uncertain about your printer, we recommend you make a few Xerox copies at a local copy shop or shipper (UPS, FedEx/Kinko’s)
Materials to Bring:
- Image transfer materials: small images (around 5” x 7” or smaller) printed through a laser printer or copied from a xerox machine, magazines (magazine transfer is unpredictable, bring a few different ones to experiment with)
- Matte medium 4 oz.
- Gel medium (matte or gloss) 8 oz.
- Acrylic paint, any brand, soft body or fluid consistency, any colors of your preference
