Packing tape transfer in process


This is another little trick we were playing with last night at Happy: packing tape transfers. A photocopied image or text can be easily transfered. Place clear packing tape over any photocopied image or text, rub it down good, soak it in water for at least 5 minutes, then rub (or gently scrub) off the paper. The ink stays on the tape. Then use gel medium (or I think glue or Yes! paste will work too) to attach it to whatever you want. Voila! I’ll post the above image (from a jury duty info sheet) as soon I use it in some art, so you can see how transparent it turns out.
