New image transfers to canvas using TAP by Lesley RIley

Lesley Riley who heads up the ink jet yahoo group has developed a new transfer paper called Transfer Artist Paper (TAP). I tried it on some canvas bags & was very pleased with the results. You can find more info on this paper at http://transferartist.com/. I find this paper to work best on fabric (at least canvas, anyway.) TAP will give you a nice bright, vivid transfer whereas Sheer Heaven is a little softer look. I love them both. TAP is a simple iron-on. There is no gel medium involved.....hooray!!! No little crumbs of white paper to wash away. No mess!
I will try it on some paper next. Have a wonderful weekend!

Hi Chaska, I'm honored that you'd want to include me in this class however, I'm going to have to pass at this time. Things are a bit hectic right now. Perhaps something in the future would work better for me. I'm not sure what all is involved as I have not participated in any on line classes before. I thank you so much for thinking of me.
