Transfer Paper from X-Press It

December 21, 2016 |  by  |  Doodling

X-Press It has come out with a new product that Imagination International, Inc. is now carrying! Transfer paper 🙂 I saw this one last year at CHA and I have been waiting NOT SO PATIENTLY for the product to arrive! I know transfer paper has been around for a very long time. But this is a new and improved version that is worth a look.

Remember the mess transfer paper was? all that black stuff all over your hands and smearing on your paper? Not from X-Press It, clean hands and clean projects the transfer only goes where you put it. And it used to come in gray and or black, but X-Press It has designed both graphite (gray) and white, for transfers onto darker papers. One other bonus (and it is a doozy) is it’s ability to run through a printer. You can print an image or design directly onto the transfer paper, lay it on top of the surface you want to create your art on and go over your lines to transfer. EASY PEASY! 

Today I am going to use it in a more traditional way and transfer a rough draft onto a final surface. I have my rough draft, my paper for my final project, Washington tape to keep things from wiggling and my white transfer paper.

When using the white make sure you check with side to lay towards your final project. The cream side is actually the transfer side.

Then I make a sandwich of my papers. I tape my rough draft on top of my final paper with two small pieces of tape at the top edge and slide my transfer paper in between the two layers.

Next I go over all of my lines with a pencil. If you are concerned you do not have the correct side facing down take a peek after drawing one or two lines to make sure. With the tape holding the paper together you can look with out messing up the transfer.

Then I finish up my art work. I have been doing a lot of practice for our new Hand Lettering Workshop and the X-Press It Transfer paper has been an invaluable tool! Wait till you see how some of the other team members are using the transfer paper with photos!

Make sure to check out all the information at Imagination International, Inc. AND also check dates for all the upcoming Copic Workshops and Certifications. There are several Certification classes that are now open for registration!
