The first attempt at layered glass with Lazertran Inkjet, clearly did not work well.
This is the very first attempt with the Lazertran.
This piece did not turn out because I did not trim the white space.
It also did not adhere correctly to the glass because I did not use enough alcohol.
I also used 2 coats of polyurethane, which turned the colors translucent.
Colors are much brighter without the polyurethane
After making the tiny mock up with inkjet transfer paper, i made another one using clear transfer paper, for a better view.
Printing of glass was the next experiment for me.
This is a tiny mock up of a glass piece I wanted to make.
The plan was to have 4-6 pieces of glass, 10" x 10" ,
This is an image of a peacock feather, cut into 7-8 pieces and printed on inkjet transfer paper.
This is my attempt at printing on aluminum and steel.
I used sandpaper to scratch the surface. I then coated the metal with 2-3 layers of gel medium.
I printed on inkjet trasnfer paper and placed the ink side down on the gel medium.
The process was not a great success for me.
This was probably my best attempt at transferring an image onto metal.
You can see where I used the sandpaper a little too much.
