Artisan Enhancements - Transfer Gel
Transfer Gel by Artisan Enhancements ® is bio-based, hypo-allergenic, low odor, NO VOC, and environmentally sustainable. Transfer Gel is a translucent, fibrous gel medium used to transfer commercially or laser printed materials. Images can be transferred to surfaces properly base coated with paint or sealed. Transfer Gel can also be used as a quality, long lasting, decoupage adhesive and sealer.
Transfer Gel can be applied to paint, furniture, wood, walls, and more . We recommend testing a small area of the desired surface and image to see if the Transfer Gel will adhere or “stick”.
Ideal Printed Materials:
Images should be printed on or copied using a professional print source or laser printer. Ink Jet prints and inks are NOT recommended. Thicker papers (26-28 lb) tend to be easier to handle and produce the best results. For the image transfer technique, make sure to make a copy of the original image and have the image mirrored/reversed. A variety of materials including wallpaper, scrapbook paper, wrapping paper, and fabric can be used as materials to be decoupaged.
If the Transfer Gel sticks to the surface, proceed to transferring the printed material. If the Transfer Gel splits, separates, or slides off the surface – the surface may need to be primed or a sealed. We recommend Clear Topcoat Sealer by Artisan Enhancements® to create a sealed barrier and a workable surface. If priming the surface is required, allow the layer of primer to dry completely at least 24-48 hours before applying the image with Transfer Gel medium.
