Default Magazine Transfers

I am addicted to a technique Kelli Hull taught at my retreat - have you guys done Magazine Transfers with a gel plate?

That looks like fun! One of the charity shops (thrift store?) in town usually has a bin full of magazines, I’ll have a look in there for fashion mags next time I’m passing.

Those are great! I have a ton of magazines now shouting at me to try this technique.

We have a half price book store here that is great for bargains! Just note that not all magazines work - it's just some trial and error to find the right ones!

I've been looking at the technique on youtube but have not tried it. One of those freebie city mags we all get in the mail has a wonderful cover picture that I may try it with.

Similar idea: I watched a gel Press or gel plate (?) video where they laid newspaper onto the plate and then applied a very thin layer of artist oil stick to get it to release onto paper. She even did it with one of the impressables.

Closest thing I’ve done in a class was using packing tape to pick up paint designs after using stencils on Gelli plates. Then the packing tape can be adhered to cards, journals, etc. So you end up with a shiny design showing through the paint.

I wonder if packing tape would also work to pick up designs from magazines.

I’m not into people on cards but objects/birds/animals would be neat. (I’d like people if they were family or friends, but they don’t tend to appear in magazines for some reason.)

Yes, I've done image transfer with clear packing tape, both with laser-printed photos and (experiment required as mentioned already) glossy magazines.

Makes sense since tape is stickier than paper. Neat, thank you.

Error above. It should have said something like the paint shows through the tape, so is shiny.

LOng long ago when I was a college student trying to finish my degree, we were taught how to use contact paper and magazine images to create visual teaching aids....It was a real pain and almost impossible to complete while living in a dorm.
BUT this may help.........we were taught to look for clay based pages. That meant licking your thumb and rubbing in the white margins. If white appeared on your skin,, it was the right thing. High end mags were the most common sources. National Geographic was one of the best. Bet high end fashion mags would have worked but their content never showed up as part of any curriculum we had to make visuals for use. LOL!

Do any of you have the links to the videos you're talking about? Or what should I look for?

The first post has links in it.

As for using packing tape to transfer Gelli plate designs, you just let your design dry on the Gelli plate - doesnít have to be bone dry - and put packing tape over it, gently press (burnish) all over, and pull up. The design will not be on the tape, ready to use on a card or whatever.

Yes, I love this technique! And also, yes, to the higher quality magazines. It was kind of funny...the first time I tried it it worked beautifully. My Mom and I do a lot of crafting, so I was in a big hurry to visit her and show her this cool, new technique. Well, the magazine pictures I had taken to her house were not of the same caliber...I was so disappointed. But we did finally try it again with success.
