Inkjet transfer

Here I printed out a top-secret FBI letter on a sheet of inkjet transparency film and transferred it to the board. It's an interesting but somewhat unpredictable procedure. Lay down a thin wash of acrylic gloss medium on the board and quickly lay in the printed transparency face down on the medium. After less than a minute, and if you got the mixture just right, it pulls the inkjet printing off the transparency film. The transfer is always slightly distressed, which is perfect for this situation.
