Hands-On Acetate Transfer Methods to Enhance Your Collage Skills!

Hello everyone!  I am asking for a few people to come a little early... around 9:45 AM to help set up tables and chairs.  This is a lot of work for one person and since we have a large group, I also need some people to stay and put the chairs and tables away afterwards.  Thanks ahead of time for your help and support.  


We are beginning the New Year with some exciting techniques.  Jennifer Harvey will teach us to transfer photos, drawings or sketches and add them to our collage projects.  This promises to be a great opportunity to move in a new direction or build upon the skills that we already possess.

Here is the list of supplies from Jennifer: Old magazines with beautiful images and words (National Geographic, art magazines, Sunset, gardening etc.); Staz On ink pad, reinker, cleaner (if you have them); Loose leafing foil (if you have it) (The one I use is called Gildenglizt by USA Art Quest); a wide shallow pan or plastic container to put water in; rubber stamps (if you have them). The materials fee will be between $2-3 and I'm really flexible about that.  I will bring the acetate with me and just charge what it costs. One sheet of acetate will be cut into 4 pieces, so images should be about card size.  I will bring my Staz On ink pad, reinker, cleaner, several rubber stamps and leafing foil and Marsha and Cathy will bring theirs so we should have plenty for people to make at least two projects.

See you on the first Saturday of 2013!  That's January 5th.

    Thank you so very much Jennifer for teaching us such a great technique today; your patience, knowledge and insight were very helpful. It was so fun watching everyone being so creative. I think everyone was pleasantly surprised with their results and how easy it was to create such a beautiful and versatile work of art. What a great way to start our crafty New Year!

    I will try and come early but have a question. Does it matter if the magazine pictures are slick or can they be newsprint type?

      Thanks Susan. I have put my creativity on hold in 2012 and have felt out of sync. Now ready to have fun - thanks for your nice welcome. I can't wait to get started!

    Hi Betty. The funny thing is, its usually the first-timers that find the simplicity in it all and the perceived complications melt away. You'll do great!

    Hi Francine--Welcome to the group. We will be supplying the acetate--which will be used to transfer images from magazines onto to create a collage. We'll also have cardstock on which to mount the completed projects. There will be a small materials fee ($2-3)--just to cover the cost of the acetate. Black StazOn is probably the best color to start with. We will have some available for you to use during the workshop--so there's no need to go out and buy it--but if you already have it--bring it. (If you later decide to purchase StazOn Ink--make sure you also purchase the reinker and cleaner. The ink dries very quickly so the pad needs to be reinked frequently and it requires a solvent based cleaner.) Our group is a very relaxed and patient group--if there is anything in the supply list that you do not have, don't worry--just come and we'll share our supplies. Let me know if you have any other questions. I look forward to meeting you. Jennifer

      No--the acetate we will be using is called "self adhesive laminating film". There is adhesive on one side of the acetate--which we will use to transfer our images onto. The product they sell at art stores like Dick Blicks is thicker than the laminating film sold at office supply stores. It's generally sold in packages of 9 x 12 or 8 x 10 sheets.

      Sounds great. THanks for the information

    I will be new to the group, just getting started. Beginning artist, but I can't tell on this post what we will use to transfer the photo onto. Watercolor paper? Or will you be providing whatever it is. Is the Stayz On Ink pad a particular color (black, clear or other)? Thanks and apologies if sounding clueless on a couple items.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
