    What? Really? For an image transfer? Not an emulsion lift, right?

    Yes sir, Art - I do mean image transfer. I struggled a bit when first learning using hair dryers, then came across a passage in a book (maybe Kathleen Carr?) where she mentions doing this if you have "sticky issues". Apply the negative to your WC paper, brayer as usual, then let the whole thing float on top of your water tray for another minute or so - gently push it underneath the surface and peel slowly.

    I don't usually care if I lose some dyes when I peel, but if I do want that *perfection*, this is how I get it.

    Hello all,
    Thank you again for all of your help. I have downloaded some of the transfers I have done in the past week. Please let me know what you think.
    Be well

    I did look, and I'd say you're off to a terrific start. Keep up the good work!

    I tried some polaroid transfer for the first time yesterday and it wasn't so successful. And one thing I noticed when comparing to Arthur's image:
    http://www.apug.org/gallery/showphot...3&ppuser=13591

    is the black almost wave-look thing in the bottom. What is that and why has it been like that? I have also got that on my prints.

    I find that when you seperate the picture from the emulsion if they touch or if anything touches the emulsion side it puts those wavey lines on the finished print. One of the hardest things to get right is a good CLEAN seperation of the print from the emulsion. It MUST be clean.
    I hope this helps

As I start to pull the polaroid from the watercolor paper i always get stuck and parts of the image pull off. As they pull off they look like gum stuck on your shoe. Should i wait longer before i seperate the 2 parts? I am at a loss. Please help.

    The perfect way to separate transfers without emulsion tearing or peeling up in stringy gooey ways ( though I like it to peel as it is more artsy).. is, after rolling then to submerge the entire sandwich in a shallow bath of 50/50 hot water & household vinegar. Separate the sandwich under the water carefully and there will most likely not be any tearing.

    (tip: Vinegar also always helps brighten transfers even old ones.)

    High contrast images ( black/white etc.. and high contrast areas usually are prone to tearing) more mid-tones flesh tones colors like flowers and warm tines will less likely tear.
