transfer love

first, a still life found on our walk this morning.....

transfer fun this evening. that & layers of color. finally to the point of adding the raven to this one. the caulk not quite dry, but will be clear. now to figure out how to finish off around her. so far so good, tho...
this is coming along. i wasn't liking it much at all, but i do now. slathering on a bunch of matte medium should finish it off.

and this is fun to play with as well. it was supposed to be a backing for a plexi print, but i'm liking the way it's shaping up & expect to have it end up as a mixed media piece in its own right. the bird at the top is the other transfer i did this evening.

i did these both with elmer's caulk & apollo transparencies. it's funny, every time someone on the inkjet group asks for a foolproof method i toss this one out- works on canvas, wood, glass, metal, you name it. for some reason no one seems as enamored of the process as i am. but that's ok. it's just sort of amusing.
studio night tomorrow- yay!

gorgeous work! I've not tried the elmer's caulk before, but one of these days, I'd like to give it a go. Seems like it works great for you!!

Had not seen your work before but love it!
I assume the Elmers Caulking is found in hardware stores or big box home stores? Tube or bottle?
I'm willing to try any new thing once!
Thanks!
