My good friend, artist and author, Lesley Riley has a new online class at CraftArtEdu. This is an online video class that you can watch on your computer anytime you want, indefinitely. In the class Lesley demonstrates a variety of ways to use TAP- Transfer Artist Paper on surfaces like paper, fabric, wood and metal.

If you’re not familiar with TAP, it’s a paper used in an ink jet printer to print your choice of images onto, and then transfer the printed image to another surface with a hot iron.

One of the cool things that sets TAP apart from other transfer products is that you can draw or paint on the printed image and then when you transfer it, everything is transferred to the surface and is permanent even if you use a water soluble media on the TAP paper.

I used TAP in several places when I made these embossed metal books with canvas pages a few years ago to play with mixed media techniques.
