The tables are turned! For once I'm the one searching out an anonymous donor (though I have my suspicions.) This print on fabric was only the cherry on top of a boekie filled with diversions and detours including a list of medications and their dosages, some slides of architectural carnage which may or may not be transmuted into art at a later date, numerous collages, artistic experiments, diary page, Peacock Asparagus label with rubber band attached and on and on. Thank you, anon as well as Diane Keys, Nadine Wendell-Mojica, Thomas Brown, Dean Marks and someone named Anne? Arne? Ame not to mention Facebook wellwishers and IOUMAers Val, Angie, Dean (again), Susan M and Carina who sent me some Finnish catalogue cuties from my preferred era: the fabulous 60s and everyone who has put up with my lackadaisical blogging despite having received stellar work from all and sundry. Perhaps today is the day when I put my nose to the blogstone and wear it down a size or two. Or maybe not. I spent my 64th birthday in California visiting my 98-year old mother. The telling anecdote: we decided to wash my underwear at the end of the visit and when I went to see how it was progressing I found them sitting calmly in a tub of water in the washer. I thought perhaps she'd forgotten to turn it on but no, she was bleaching them before she washed them. My smalls, yellowed with age and other things, still concerned her. You can't keep a good mom down. Thanks again to everyone, boekie maker and all ye with great patience. I remain solidly in your debt.

That's really orgeous.

The Golden grounds are very good, but I like the DASS grounds much better. For transfer to substrates that you really don't want to, or can't, run through your printer, learn to use Bonnie Lotkha's "Super Sauce." or use her older methods of blending gelatin and polymers. Really wonderful results!

Thanks Dan and Carmela. I have the Epson R3000 but I have been wary of using different substrates but  I'll check the golden site out...Thanks for the info...Dan, does Digital Art Studio Seminars have a website?

Jack--erratum--make that 'Canon' printer

David--If you have the time and inclination, Golden makes Digital Grounds that can be used to prepare papers, fabrics, aluminum foil and other substrates for ink jet printing. There is a lot of info in the technical and newsletter sections on its web site including some videos. I've successfully used low- budget Cannon printers with a 'straight' feed. However, my experience is limited.

That's great!

David,
I learned ways to run all sorts of materials through my old Epson 2200, but so far I've been reluctant to put odd stuff through my current printer, an Epson R3000. This piece on fabric was printed on the 3000, but it is a properly prepared injet-ready material that comes mounted on a paper backing with low-tack adhesive. Usually I use a fairly sophisticated and complex transfer printing process for non-paper substrates using products primarily from Digital Art Studio Seminars.
