Creating a Transparent Layer with Creative Team Member Kathy Thompson

Posted on | March 27, 2012 | 5 Comments

Hey everyone! It’s Kathy from the creative design team. I’ve created this quick video to show you how to make a transparent layer by printing an image directly onto ordinary tissue paper. The image will appear to float above the background layer adding depth and interest to almost any resin project.

1. This technique works best if you choose a black and white image to print onto the tissue paper and layer it over a light background.
2. This same technique could also be accomplished by stamping onto the tissue with permanent ink.


I hope that you enjoy the video.
