I am posting a couple of Gel transfers that my husband & I did on freezer paper & transferred to decorative paper. We followed these steps: 1) We printed ink jet print on the freezer paper. 2) Covered decorative paper with a thin to medium layer of Golden soft gel medium 3) Laid freezer paper face down on gel & brayered paper to lay flat. 4) My hubby shot his for a few seconds with the hairdryer (I did not.) 5) Removed the freezer paper. I was flabbergasted when my husband pulled his paper off. It looked so good I almost ordered him out of my kitchen! His is the first pic shown with the lovely lady in the large hat. He had one flaw on the side of her face but I still thought it turned out beautifully. I slapped her right down on a 6x12" canvas. Mine is the polka-dot girl. I followed directions above minus the hairdryer. I removed the paper about 30-40 seconds after it was put down. I am not that lucky with gel transfers normally so I was pretty pleased with this one. She hasn't been mounted to anything just yet.
I do want to say that the woman with the large hat was from a postcard that I found on Flickr. It
belongs to Charlie Dave who was kind enough to let me use the postcard image. It was from his Mum's collection from the 20's or 30's. Have a great weekend everyone!
