Fabric image transfers: t-shirt & transparencies

By  | 

Technique Tuesday

Last week I talked about a couple of my favorite methods for transfering images from one paper to another. Today I want to look at transfering to fabric instead. There are two methods that I use more than any other, and I want to start by showing you side-by-side what the final results look like:

The first is a t-shirt transfer, and the second is a transparency transfer. It's easy to see how much more pigmented and opaque the t-shirt transfer turns out to be. Both of these methods will reverse the image, just like the ones we saw last week, so keep that in mind when you are printing out your inkjet picture.
