I just got this book and read it over the weekend. It is by leaps and bounds the most comprehensive book on the subject of image transfer. It contains all that the others on this topic contain and much, much more. I especially like the trouble shooting suggestions they include on every topic like "why is my image not transferring." I wish it had come out years ago. The artist seem to prefer Golden Acrylic products, but many other brands and products are also covered, particularly where they have a specific niche.

This is just what I have been waiting for: a one-stop, comprehensive resource for all my transfer needs & questions. It will be the ONLY book you'll require to create your own sensational work. The book features ample color photographs, step-by-step instructions & an all-important "troubleshooting" section after each technique. A must have for the mixed media artist.

This book is a must have if you do mixed media art or even if you just want to have tons-o-fun experimenting with these wonderful techniques. Darlene and Sandra have produced the very best book on the market explaining these fabulous procedures. The instructions are VERY clear, understandable, and easy to follow and the troubleshooting sections are incredibly helpful. I've been waiting for this book for a long time and am so happy it's here!

Wow. WOW.

Transfers are a tricky lot. Transfers can be frustrating. One method can produce a perfect transfer once...then never seem to work again. Failed transfers have resulted in many of my pieces being trashed. Even though they are temperamental - and seem to be for everyone - Darlene Olivia McElroy and Sandra Duran Wilson have broken the mold and tamed the wicked ways of transfers. Or at least explained how to make them behave for artists.

With all the problems one encounters while attempting transfers, it's amazing more artists just don't give up. I personally know of many who have. Enter the authors of this book...and your success rate could dramatically rise. Into the stratosphere. You can easily go from hating transfers and not using them - at all...ever - to using them on everything standing still. This book makes that much of a difference.

There are tons of methods depicted. An example of each method is demonstrated in a piece by one of the talented authors. My favorite part? The "Troubleshooting" section. Even with the excellent guidance of these Transfer Divas, you will have transfers go awry. Why? They will explain possible reasons - and then give you solutions! (Can you hear the trumpets sounding?) These gals lay out the necessary supplies, give explicit directions, do incredible step outs, tell you the archival quality of each method, troubleshoot problems, and give you ideas on recommended substrates. What more could you want...seriously??

The Transfer Divas (which is what I've renamed these ladies) even have a section in the back about where to purchase supplies. Schwing! The instructions are simple and doable - and it's exciting to know transfers are actually possible.

Whenever I see a new book come out on my favorite technique, image transfers, I simply cannot restrain my fingers from hitting the "buy me now" button. Once in awhile I am disappointed but sometimes I am also totally, unabashedly, thrilled with a book. This book, "Image Transfer Workshop", looked like it was right up my alley and it is ! I LOVE this book. It explores so many different techniques and presents them so well that I would venture to say that this is a "must have" book for anyone who has an interest in image transfers, mixed media, or art quilting. I think it is one of the best books on this subject to come down the proverbial pike in a long time. "Transfers & Altered Images" by Chris Cozen is still a favorite book but is a bit more technique focused because Ms. Cozen is an artist for Golden Paints. Golden Paints are my favorite products to use but it is good to have a book that covers ALL manner of image transfer techniques. This book does that and does it very admirably.The variety of techniques covered in the book is phenomenal . It's a fabulous resource and I think, should be in the library of any mixed media artist! 5 stars on this one ! Highly recommended!

I bought this book by curiosity, because I wanted to know more about transfer techniques, though I already have many books on the subject, and I already made transfers many times myself. But since the reviews were rather good, I thought it would be interesting for me to read this book.
And I am not disappointed at all. It is really very well explained, they give information I saw nowhere else and some of them are rather original, according to me. I am an arts and crafts teacher myself, and I already wrote a book about arts and crafts in France, so it is rather difficult to surprise me, but I must admit this book is very complete about all the transfer techniques. The only thing I didn't find so far, and maybe I didn't search well, is the basic technique where you use the simple photo transfer paper with your printer. But no need of a book for that, you just have to follow the instructions on the package of the paper.
No, here, you will rather find techniques which make you use products you already have in your studio or in your kitchen.
Everything is clear, so it is easy to understand, for beginners as well as for people who already know what they are doing.
Beside the convincing content, the images are beautiful. You don't need to have the exact same style as what is shown here, but it is pleasant to look at these images, in the same time, learning something interesting and having fun.
So, I recommend this book if you want to know different transfer techniques. And no matter what kind of printer you use, the authors will tell you every time with which kind of printer it works.
I would even say, if you want to only have 1 book about the transfer techniques, this is the one.
