Transfer Artist Paper (TAP) is a polymer-coated paper that allows artists to print, draw, or paint a design and transfer it to a different surface via the heat from a household iron. Though it was originally intended for use on fabric, TAP can be applied to a variety of surfaces, including paper, metal, wood, and glass, making it a versatile tool for mixed-media crafters and scrapbookers. Riley, who invented TAP for her own work, curated this collection of 16 projects using the paper in a variety of ways—including art quilts, a handmade journal, printed boxes, and a flour-sack towel impressed with a family recipe. Each of the contributing crafters has a different approach to TAP, demonstrating the wide variety of applications, from simple image transfers to layered pieces of art. Though a basic overview of working with TAP is included, Riley's first book, Create with Transfer Artist Paper, presents more extensive instructions. VERDICT The diversity of these projects will appeal to mixed-media crafters, and the directions are simple and beginner friendly.
