Transfer Experiments

Experiment #1:
Image: (left) printed on Staples premium double sided matte paper using an HP inkjet printer
Medium: I use Speedball gloss medium, brushed one coat onto printed image
Transfer method: I flipped the image onto painted card, rubbed first with my fingers and then with the back of a spoon. I lifted the photo paper off from the corner.
Results: The finished card has a pattern where the transferred image didn't adhere - it looks like the grain of the watercolor paper, perhaps.
Comments: Next time I will try two coats on the printed image and rub harder.
