This review is from: Create with Transfer Artist Paper: Use TAP to Transfer Any Image onto Fabric, Paper, Wood, Glass, Metal, Clay & More! (Paperback)
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

Create with Transfer Artist Paper by Leslie Riley is a new book about TAP (Transfer Artist Paper), which is a product that she developed several years ago. I have used TAP before and I am amazed at the possibilities that TAP presents. TAP is best used on fabrics, as it gets in the fibers, and can be stretched for T shirts. TAP can also be used on wood, clay, glass, metal, and paper. If you can iron onto the surface, TAP will create a transfer. I keep a large supply on hand for most of my projects.
Create with Transfer Artist Paper includes many projects for people to make on the many surfaces that it works with, and gives complete instructions and tips for this product. Riley also gives tips on editing your picture or image and she makes the process very straight forward and easy to understand. The book includes 15 projects and four of them are presented by Riley. The other eleven projects in the book are by other artists that you will probably recognize.
TAP is very fun to use and when you try it, new possibilities will be running into your mind. Create with Transfer Artist Paper gives you even more ideas!

This review is from: Create with Transfer Artist Paper: Use TAP to Transfer Any Image onto Fabric, Paper, Wood, Glass, Metal, Clay & More! (Paperback)I recently saw a demo of the TAP (Transfer Artis Paper) and immediately wanted to try it. I picked up a couple packets at my local art supply store, but hesitated. I just wasn't quite sure how to use it.
I picked up the book and was glad I did. The book give instructions on how to use TAP on various materials including fabric (it's original intended use), paper, canvas, Lutradur, wood, metal and glass AND the pros and cons of transferring with TAP onto each of these surfaces. The book provides tips on how to to prepare your images in your photo editing software for best results. There are 15 projects and additional ideas for how to use TAP including painting or drawing directly on the TAP. The book has detailed illustrations and examples.
As an art quilter with an interest in using mixed media and photographic images in my work, I find this book to be a welcomed addition to the other reference books in my library.
