- Photo from my computer, printed on to A4 paper
- Liquitex "basics" gloss gel medium
- Credit card - to apply the medium
Well, after nearly FIVE whole blooming hours I found I was losing the will to live (or do I mean image transfer?). A scoot by peak revealed a totally clear image so I cut loosely round my gelled image and put some water in a bowl ...
After soaking for a little while I removed my image from the bowl and started peeling.
Not sure whether it's supposed to happen this way but my image was all white again when I'd finished! I'd also managed to tear it in a couple of places - memo to self, THICKER layer of gel medium AND do it before heading to bed so it's good and dry by the morning!!!
Back to the drawing board ...... perhaps a different image and definitely a thicker layer!! I'm not deterred but it DOES sound like a lot of work for little reward - Check back in a day or so and see if I've mastered it!
