Packing tape image transfer

Using clear packing tape to transfer images, I layered them onto other papers in my sketchbook. It's a very simple technique using wide clear packing tape to stick on images and text found in old magazines, laser prints and photocopies.

  1. Firmly press the tape onto the image.
  2. Place the taped paper in some warm water
  3. After a few minutes gently rub the back of the paper until all the paper has been removed and only the ink of the image remains.
  4. The tape will regain it's tackiness when it dries.

Tip: Taped images can be stored on greaseproof paper sticky side down until needed.
