USING TRANSFER CRAYONS TUTORIAL

AT THE TOP OF THIS POST IS AN IMAGE OF WINNIE THE POOH
I found a copyfree image & crayoned in the colours, exactly the same as with normal crayons, colour within the lines.  Then outline the edges with black.
  • The crayons can be shapened with a normal pencil sharpener or with a craft knife
  • Make sure that you get rid of any 'bits' of crayon from your image especially around the edges - remember that EVERYTHING - even little bits will transfer & large bits will make BLOBs
FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS ON 3CS ON HOW TO TRANSFER onto fabric

TRANSFER PRINTING - WITH RUBBINGS
  • Create a RUBBING BOARD.  TO DO THIS USE stiff CARD OR CARDBOARD. CUT a base board to the required size
  • CUT shapes - use basic geometric shapes to start with - out of thick stiff card.
  • GLUE these shapes to the base board
  • Leave to dry
  • REFER to the 3CS tutorial re types of paper to use for transfering or purchase my workshop
  • Lay a sheet of scrap paper onto a flat surface
  • Lay your rubbing board FACE UP on top of the scrap paper
  • Lay chosen transfer paper on top of the rubbing board & using masking tape secure the transfer paper to the scrap paper
  • The image shows the CRAYOLA crayons & the taped paper & rubbing board
For this tutorial I have chosen to use the following colours, in this order
BLUE random squiggles









 
PURPLE tighter squiggles




Black heavy squiggles, this is now defining the shapes

I then added YELLOW around the shapes









Below is the transferred image on the left hand side & the coloured paper (in reverse) on the right hand side

I have transferred to 100% polyester satin cream fabric
