Provence Pottery Shop with Lois Kershner

Learning about photo transfers was interesting. We got to try it on a small photo. Mine turned out ok on the first try. But, the process either works or it doesn’t & that canvas won’t be able to be used. It’s hit or miss – different transfer papers are not all created equally. Heat from the iron must be very hot.  Have extra transfer paper.

Fortunately,  Lois did the canvases for our class. And, we are just stitching certain areas. This is as far as I got in the 2-day class.

I stitched this morning waiting for the exhibit to open and again after the CyberPointers meeting in order to do the tricky parts before I forget & before Lois leaves. Except for 3 finishing touches, all I have now are T stitch under the doorway vine and to the right of the door, basketweave in 3 areas, and lazy daisies to stitch. But, there is enough of that left to keep me busy!

What fun, Melita! I love the way the photo on the canvas is enhanced by the stitches. What was the type/band of photo transfer paper that you used? Sue

Hi Sue, I’m not 100% sure what she had in class for our practice flower transfer. But, the Pottery Shop Congress Cloth booklet says she used Lesley Riley’s Transfer Artist Paper. She had made them up before class because not all transfers work on all types of fabric and it’s really hit or miss if it transfers on a piece of canvas/cloth. So, it would have wasted our time during seminar to spend time transferring the actual pottery shop photo. She says you can just google & find various types. I think it would be fun to try on one of my own photos.
