I started out to deliberately get transfer paint onto leaves with this one (I started it as a series of color mixing tests but it got out of hand):
Then I flipped the leaves color side down and used them as a resist for a dark blue plate:
and then I realized the leaves had blue on them and I should try this.
I am stunned. There is a very easy progression to making this stuff and using it, but the results are so fluid and unexpected. I will have yards of samples by the end of the transfer paints as the Media of the Moment.
Unexpected bummer: transfer paints work best on man made fibers - these gorgeous things are 100% polyester which makes the fiber snob in me quiver
