Transfer Experiments

Experiment #2:
Image: (left) printed on Staples premium double sided matte paper using an HP inkjet printer
Medium: I use Speedball gloss medium, brushed two coat onto printed image, letting it dry in between coats
Transfer method: I flipped the image onto painted card, rubbed first with my fingers and then with the back of a spoon and then with a bone folder. I lifted the photo paper off from the corner. It wasn't done, I rubbed more.
Results: The finished card came out better this time - the image is almost complete, but I'm still seeing the grain of the paper.
Comments: Maybe I need to coat the painted card with medium also to discourage the grain from appearing?
