image transfer with powerprint

working with powerprint is so quick and easy
not only can you use it with powertex and stoneart
it also works beautifully on leather, glass, metal and wood!!
the possibilities are endless
you can even transfer onto a terracotta pot
for my project
supplies needed
a canvas, corrugated cardboard, powercotton,
powertex in blue , ivory and bronze
stoneart and powerprint

 I mixed blue and ivory powertex to create the sky
working on the top two thirds I painted the canvas and then added stoneart to create some texture
paying more attention to the edges
I used bronze powertex for the "earth" and adding an extra thick layer in the centre
letting it sit for 5 minutes to create a "skin" I added stoneart  and gently rubbed it in
this made some really cool cracks
to add to the ground texture I painted some cardboard and powercotton

powerprint is so easy to use
simple apply a thin coat to the area and add your toner based photocopy face down
allow to completely dry ( use can use a dryer to speed the process)

once dried just add water and rub
