very misleading they said transfer sheets not transfer art i just wanted the sheets so i could transfer my own art i am very heart broken i will be returning this product for a full refund
Create With Transfer Artist Paper, by Lesley Riley, is a great introduction to the variety of wonderful things you can do with Transfer Artist Paper (TAP). Lesley's writing is warm and personable and she really clearly explains the various uses of this product. I was not overly impressed by any of the artwork in this book but I did appreciate the variety of surfaces and techniques demonstrated by each piece. There are some good basic instructions for editing photos using photo editing software. Lesley covers some of the pros and cons of using TAP on various surfaces so the user will have a good idea what to expect and how to deal with any complications that might arise. I find it really exciting that you can use other art media such as pastels or pencils on TAP and that transfers can be layered on top of one another for additional effects. This book will give you some great ideas if you are an artist who is interested in image transfers or is looking for a way to get your own artwork out of your sketchbook and onto another surface.
I have tried many methods for transferring words and images onto my collage quilts. This product seemed the answer but the real help is this book. The explanations are clear and easy to follow. However the best part is the ways to use TAP that I had never thought of....usually I will try some experiments and waste a product or become frustrated but here EVERY SURFACE has been tried and the methods and results are right there! I had it spiral bound so I could use it over and over!
In Create with Transfer Artist Paper, Lesley Riley shows us how to use this wonderful product in creative and exciting ways. Lesley starts with the basics of TAP and how to use it. She writes about preparing the image for printing and the best way to iron it. TAP can be transferred to almost any surface and in the book, Lesley has several projects on fusing TAP to different surfaces. I bought TAP some time ago and with this book, I now have the confidence to open the pack and crate something brilliant!
