Book Study - Pulled Paper

 On NGS group, we're doing a study of Darlene Olivia McElroy & Sandra Duran Wilson's book "Surface Treatment workshop" This week we're looking at the section "Pulled Paper".
 Start with painting your surface as desired. Using a paint brush or palette knife apply a thin layer of soft gel medium to the surface.
 Lay down newsprint or an ink-jet image down and burnish with a bone folder. Let set for 30 seconds. A shorter time, the ink might not transfer, a much longer time and the paper will adhere and not lift off.
 Lift the paper off, now that the image will appear in the reverse of what's printed. This looks nice and grungy.
 Here's a background I left the paper down too long and could not lift off the paper.
 Painted over the paper with gold Lumiere paint and heat set to get the bubbly texture and speed the drying process.
 Applied a thin layer of soft gel medium, burnished down a sheet of music. Happy to see the ink transferred.
 Here's another one I did with a music sheet over paper painted with pearl white Lumiere paint.
The authors state than this technique can be done with many layers and a variety of images. Lots of fun experimenting can be done.

Looks like fun! I have had little success with transfers, but this one looks like it will work for me!
