Packing Tape Transfers: Part two


Packing tape transfer cardsOn June 12, I blogged about my first attempt at using packing-tape and good quality  magazine pictures to obtain a transparency type picture.

You may remember that at the time I wasn’t too fussed with the results. Of course that could have been due to my natural impatience at getting the procedure over and done with!

Yesterday, I paced myself more slowly, and instead of soaking the prepared sheets in cold water, I opted to try warm to HOT water, and set the timer for 30 minutes.

The results were more satisfactory this time, although I found that using two pieces of tape on the one picture did result in a weakness where the tapes butted together. If you look closely at the card featuring The Pinnacles in W.A. you will see that I added/collaged(?) an extra Pinnacle to minimize the split in the film.
