It can be used in mixed-media art, scrapbooking, fine art and a host of other craft disciplines. Rarely does any one book cover a large variety of transfers until now. Image Transfer Workshop introduces you to a vast number of transfer techniques (complete with finished art samples) that go well beyond the rudimentary tape and gel transfers found in other books. Instructions for combining transfers, trouble-shooting and complete works of art enable you to take your transfer knowledge to the next level for a variety of finished looks.
