Continuing with their photography experimentation, the Grade 12 Media Arts classes have been learning how to transfer their photos to unique surfaces using a gel transfer technique. Gel transferring involves spreading a layer of gel medium onto an object (a piece of wood, metal, a table, chair etc…) and then pressing an image or photo into the gel. Water is then used to dissolve the paper away but the ink from the image remains absorbed into the clear gel on the printing surface. This technique often creates a vintage-like effect. A lot of the students have chosen something personal to them to print on like a chest or a record player. Other students have made something practical like, a sign that will hang outside of their art room. There are so many possibilities with gel transfer techniques and it’s great to see the diversity in the final products.
