This workshop will explore several methods of migrating images from film to new substrates. We will supply participants with pre-printed images. Please note that we will not be able to print student’s images for this workshop.

Part One of the workshop uses Purell hand sanitizer as the release agent for the image from the film.  This process enables the user to work with porous substrates such as Arches 88 paper, tissue, filter paper, etc. Everyone will make two Purell transfers.

Part Two of the workshop uses a product called Super Sauce. Detailed descriptions of this product will be reviewed and once again students will produce two transfers onto clay paper. This product is useful for transfers onto non-porous surfaces such as metals, wood, boards, etc.

Upon completion of the transfer processes the final results will be adhered to card stock for the preparation of notecards.  The cards may be used for any occasion or bundled as a group and used as a gift. Envelopes will be provided for each card.

This workshop is suitable for all photographers or artists.
