Application of Image Transfers made with Altered Pages Images and Sakura Crystal Lacquer

Welcome to Altered Pages! Susan here bringing a little more image transfer play. My image transfers were created using Altered Pages Digital Download Collage Sheets and Sakura 3D Crystal Lacquer.

I am so excited to get back to work with this peacock image transfer - it's so beautiful!!! This image is from the Altered Pages Tiffany Windows AP-493 Collage Sheet.

To prepare my mirror, I gently took apart the frame from handle and removed the glass.

Then I spray painted the mirror handle and frame with gold spray paint.

Now I'm ready to apply image transfer to mirror handle. **A TIP** To uncurl the image transfers - I misted with a small amount of water to prevent additional cracking and to make image transfer easier to work with in application. Please watch the following video to describe further...

This is completed applied image transfer after about an hour of adhering and adjusting while working in small sections. I used Sakura Crystal Lacquer to adhere to my mirror base. I trimmed edges leaving about 1/8" extra to wrap around edge. 

To continue image seamlessly down the handle, I tore and collaged sections that I had cut away. As an extra bonus, the gold base layer and the circular texture detail of mirror frame is visible through the image transfer.

I'm so happy how this is turning out and this is just the beginning.
I'm going to let this dry for a couple hours.

Please come back this evening to see the completely finished "Altered Mirror". CLICK HERE to view part 2 and completed project.

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
