I decided to try it out on my drop cloth fabric as well as muslin for some frenchy inspirational type pillows. The process is very simple. The materials needed are a mirror image laser copy of your image, some sort of strong tape, cotton ball, CitraSolv, a spoon, and a little elbow grease.
I did have a tough time finding CitraSolv. I found it at an natural herbal type store.
First print out your image from your computer. Next, go and make a mirror image copy using a laser copying machine. This is important because something from the laser toner cartridge reacts with the CitraSolv. Then, tape your image face down on your fabric.
Take your cotton ball with the CitraSolv on it and coat the image. Be careful not to over soak or the paper will tear.
Next, burnish with a spoon. Here are the two different fabrics side by side.
As you can see, the drop cloth didn't turn out quite as good. I had to go back and trace the words with my fabric pen. Here is the finished product.
I found from comparing my past place mat project with this that perhaps using the color copier verses the black and white copier made a difference. Maybe next time, I'll just use the color copier. I had better results with the image transfer with color.
