Technique #11 inkjet transfers and stamping



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.

  1. Hi Beth! This is wonderful! So many fun things to do!! I'm wondering about source for printing ink...are you using the same sort of ink here as in your February 3 post? Where do you get the printing ink? Thanks!

    1. This is from the post below:
      It's just a plain old computer printer. Mine is a cheap Epson. Any Inkjet will do. Give it a try. Dampen the paper evenly - not too wet - just damp. It's really magic!!
