Online T&T 3: Update

The Joy of Eucalyptus Oil Transfer

We’re delighted to have received an update to the current Tips & Tricks challenge.  Sue has been working on a new piece and has sent the following to share with everyone.


This is an example of a photocopy that came out quite yellow at the laser copy stage.  It may have something to do with the era the photo was taken – sometime in the 1970s. Mum would have used a regular camera, sent the film away to get developed etc, etc!

I scanned the original photo (now over 50 years old) and printed it on my inkjet printer, then got a laser copy at the Post Office.

I used some coloured pastels after the transfer to try and make it more interesting and got rid of some of the yellow in Paola’s dress which was white in the original photo.  It presented creativity with an opportunity to unleash itself .. !

As a result of this new information, which you may like to try, we’ve extended the deadline for completed work to be submitted until Saturday 13th June, late afternoon.

Email your results to our webmaster, Claire, by clicking here.
