Here are images for those who need a visual for November's project.
this is a sheet of color copies of vintage photo's. you see the different tones you get which is why you don't want a black and white. (but then it's your project and you can do as you wish) :)
the b & w you will use to trace onto your substrate (cradled wood/canvas/paper/wood etc) you will use carbon paper to trace areas that you want to paint
Lay your image on laminating sheet to see where you need to cut
Here i'm burnishing-i used popsicle style stick here. I usually use a burnisher but sometimes it leaves a lot of "lines" so i'm trying this. could use a spoon too.
here is a sample of peeled transfer and the b & w copy that i will use to trace my area's for painting.
after waiting at least 24 hours (hardest part) you can wet the back of your image and start to remove the paper with your finger.
I found it easiest to start in a corner to get the paper peeling. After you do an initial rub, let it dry a bit and see what still needs to be removed and go from there.
It actually peeled off in two swipes
here is a vintage book page that i did with the laminating sheet. it removes all paper and leaves you with text that you can layer over something-just an idea.
