Yikes...More transfers

This image transfer is the one I am most happy with. I transferred her directly to canvas using Lumiere gold acrylic paint. Once the image was transferred I added the rest. I have always prepared my background first but I've ruined so many backgrounds with bad image transfers that I believe this is the better way to do it.
This photo was transferred to stone using the Lumiere acrylic gold paint. A little bit of the image came off around her arm & her face peeled in half when I rubbed off the paper. I had to cut out another head from the same image & did the head alone a 2nd time. I'm pretty happy with her, too.

This is transferred directly to canvas using Lumiere gold acrylic paint. She has the crackle going on.

Now that I'm home from ArtFest I have returned to my image transfer obsession! This is one that I transferred directly to the canvas using Lumiere acrylic gold paint . I was pretty darn happy with this one!

Your transfers look fabulous! I can't believe you were able to do it on stone. You may just have something with doing the transfer 1st and then the background. I guess it all depends on if you want that layered look.
