Red Hot Press

Photo Transfer Printing

A way of creating photographic imagery from photocopies or making images from wax crayon drawings. The process works on the basis that water is repelled by grease. An image on paper is treated with a gum solution and then carefully rolled up with ink. You can take around ten prints from one image on paper. It is sometimes called Gum Transfer Printing.

All images shown here have been produced at the workshop.
