Image Transfer & Acrylic Skins Workshop

Discover the range of acrylic gels and mediums that can be used to create image transfers.

Explore how to transfer laser copies of your own artwork, drawings or photographs onto the surface of your paintings or collages. Learn how to create Image Transfer Skins and Paint Skins. Gain a broad understanding of product, material, method, tips & tricks. These techniques are an excellent way to develop transparent & translucent imagery, text and texture, incorporating layers into your paintings, collages or mixed media works.

Each artist will create samples of each product, process & technique; each detail will be
documented, creating a reference that will prove to be an invaluable resource for all futureprojects. All levels are welcome.
