Margaret has asked me to pass this tip from Annette on to you all about a way of finishing your image transfers. You can use Acrylic wax to Bring out the detail in your image and add a subtle shine. For my image taken from a boiler, the transfer was a bit unclear, and still looked papery, even though I had rubbed it as much as I felt able:
The next photo is after the wax has been applied. It is noticeably clearer, and I think, when combined with a good quality transfer will really lift it. The acrylic wax I used is by Crafty Notions, and is available from Rainbow Silks, among others.
