APR 29 - Acrylic Medium Transfer

My acrylic transfer is ready to be glued to the painting. I had prepared a small 8 x 10 canvas with layers of acrylic, glazes, stamps, and tissue paper - and adhering her to the canvas was relatively easy - just watch for air bubbles. Lesson learned: the transfer is transparent, even where the colored pencil is - so putting my gardener on a dark or colored background just made her dull and colorless - and still without one knee!
But God Bless her - she's still smiling!!

  1. I've dabbled in transfers, too and I know what you mean about "seeing" through parts...it's frustrating! But, I think it looks fabulous...and she IS still smiling!! Nice work!
