So I have had this bottle of Golden Digital Grounds for a long time-more than 6 months. I have done so much other stuff that this wonderful stuff has been completely overlooked. For some reason today I felt inspired to play with it-so I did.
I have a large stash of rice paper (you know, you never know when you will need it so of course I have it) and decided to try printing on it. Never in a million years would I even try to run this stuff through my printer-I have always been afraid it would tear and jam up in my beloved printer. I have heard of it being used with the Digital Grounds so I thought I would try it. I treated my rice paper as directed with the Golden Digital Grounds (gloss) and then taped the paper to my regular printer paper with masking tape. I was surprised-this stuff really goes a long way! I picked out the image of the door to try with this, and printed it up as usual on my Epson Inkjet printer. Wow! I LOVE it! I can see this opening a whole new door, so to speak :) Endless possibilities. This has left me wanting to try more. I tried placing the image I printed over a piece of old text and I love it! The rice paper is so transparent. I can see myself totally using this on my canvases. As much as I adore doing image transfers, this just may be another way to add an image without all the effort. This stuff has my mind spinning!
