This was my first attempt. You can see where it bubbled up. Still use it tho.

It got better as I went along. Learned a trick. If you get bubbles when putting second coats on take an xacto knife and make little cuts in picture to let air out. It's easy. Go for it. Worse part was finding enough pictures. Good luck.

There's a big stack of Life Magazines from the 50's upstairs in the old adobe ranch house where I live. I'd like to do this with a few images of those ladies in the fancy aprons advertising the kitchen appliances for my AS kitchen. So different than anything that happens around here!

A trick I saw at U of Minn used the acrylic painting Gloss Gel product (Gesso is opaque) where one if can get a coat dried on an object you can do a transfer of a picture to it...

The ceramic coating on old magazines like National Geographic makes it work best, they put a fine clay over the paper pulp to make the page ultra-smooth and accept inks that plain paper can't.

The way I saw was putting a fresh thin coat over the dried 1st coat and then pressing on the magazine page and letting it dry, then c a r e f u l l y rubbing away the paper pulp and most of the ceramic glaze to leave only the inked photo.

It's surprising that some of these can transfer a great image and some not-so-well, a lot of experimentation is required. Perhaps the magazine cover images work best as they are the richest in inks.

A quick scan shows many google hits, here is one: Transferring Printed Images into Artwork

I think the extra step of a first coat makes sure there is enough of the medium there that the image gets better bonded so a little careless rubbing or too-long wet time won't ruin it as easily.

Working with a curved surface may make it extra difficult, this process alreay has enough antique 'patinia' so the creases or pleat drop-outs may make some really unexpected results...
