As we saw in the last post about t-shirt transfers to fabric, the transparency transfer method yields a more delicately colored and transparent image. Here's how to do it:
1. Print out your image on the rough side of an inkjet transparency. Prepare the receiving cloth, ironing it flat if needed.
2. Apply a thin but thorough layer of polymer gloss medium to the fabric. Position the image and burnish it well. The fabric will probably be slippery, so hold your image down carefully.
3. Remove the transparency carefully, and top the image with matte medium to cut the shine if desired.
