Image Transfer with Margo Duvall

mjd_06.jpeg

Learn how to transfer images to a variety of mixed media material including wood, metal, paper, canvas, etc. This experimental workshop will introduce you to techniques that apply images onto various surfaces to make unique, one-of-a-kind art objects. We’ll go over different transfer methods, and experiment with collaging, painting, and layering multiple images to create more complex pieces of art. This workshop is perfect for people that like to be hands- on and adventurous in their creative process. No experience needed— just curiosity!

Supply List: We’ll be providing most of the materials to do the transfer processes, but you’ll want to bring some photos of your own and maybe a few materials to work with. Here’s what you’ll need to bring:

  • Photocopies of images you want to transfer. Xerox copies work better than inkjet prints. Think about the size you want. We will provide 6 x 6” wood blocks, but you may want something bigger or smaller. These can be photos you’ve taken, old family photos, pages from books, maps, anything really. ***If you want the text to be legible, you’ll want to reverse the image before you print it. Here’s a quick how-to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HDq-6t2Q31Y

  • Scrap material to transfer your images to: Hardwood, Metal pieces, Fabric, Paper. Basically, we can try anything. From my experience, smoother surfaces work better than rough ones. It allows the image to go on cleaner and stick better.

  • Paint or collage materials. Acrylic or water based works best. Pencils, Pens, Watercolors, magazines, anything you want to play with. It’s totally up to you and your creative vision! Zig Zag will have supplies on-hand, but if you have a specific brand or type you’re fond of, please bring.

  • Apron (just in case)

Margo Duvall is an artist and professor living in Little Rock. She teaches Photography at Henderson State University. Her work explores a variety of techniques including alternative and modern processes of image transfer, cyanotype and mixed mediums. Her current work explores the impact of family photographs and memory on the interior development of self. Through the use of mix media, she extends the traditional photograph into an ethereal element and creates an environment for viewers to experience their own relationships to self and memory. www.margoduvall.com
