ATC’s – Stamped on Fabric

Via Artmix – as well as answering the Wednesday Stamper challenge: 2 ATC’s, stamped on fabric. Fabric first got images transferred to it using gesso transfer. Stamps: Paperbag, MM, A Stamp in the Hand. Oil crayons, my own scaloped edge paper (Basic Grey, scaloped using cutting plotter), sequins, tiny watchmaker parts and copper heishi beads … PLUS two gorgeous turquoise mother-of-pearl buttons.

Edit: Since I was asked several times how gesso transfer works, here you go: It is basically the same technique as the one using acrylic matte / glossy / gel medium. You can use many acrylic paints, and gesso, for this transfer technique. Here is a tutorial with step-by-step instructions.

  1. Thanks for sharing this technique! I’ve tried the gel medium transfers before but had no idea it worked with gesso. I will have to try this soon…

    Your ATCs are very cool!
