As you probably know you can transfer images to a great number of different surfaces such as: photo papers, canvas, wood, ceramic tile and so on. And so obviously experimenting with different surfaces is one enjoyable aspect of image transfer.
One of my favorite surfaces to transfer to is aluminum foil and recently I decided it will probably be a good idea to mount these transfer on a canvas panel so they don’t tear easily as they might when they are kept loose.
So all you need to do here is take a canvas panel or any other firm surface of your choice and using Mod Podge cover it with aluminum foil.
And now you have your surface ready to receive the transfer.
Here, when covering the 8”X6” canvas panel I made sure to smoothen the surface before transferring the image (taken at the Metropolitan Museum in Manhattan) onto the foil.
And here I actually crumpled in the foil and didn’t smoothen it when covering the canvas in order to create a textured surface.
