Film Emulsion Transfer Print
This print is the results of an image printed with an inkjet printer
using archival pigment inks onto a sheet of transfer film. The emulsion
of the film can then be transferred to a variety of substrates such as
canvas, watercolor papers, metal and wood.
The receiver substrate is coated with a “sauce” that releases the
emulsion from the film base. Once the substrate is prepared, the
printed film is then rolled onto the substrate to ensure there are
no air bubbles trapped and left for three to four minutes. The film
is then pealed of leaving the emulsion attached to the substrate.
The process is all done by hand and results vary from variations
of substrates and take on different looks and results.
By using this process each image has its individual unique look.
The images are original photographs created with a professional
digital camera. No additional photo-shop or manipulations are
done to the image.
