Making clear acrylic transfers of photos and prints

When Kim Rootes gave her excellent demo on collage this morning at the February meeting of the Tomball Art League, the subject of making acrylic 'skins' came up. Acrylic medium can be used to make a clear transfer of a photograph, photocopy, or print, so it can be added to a collage or mixed media  painting. YouTube has a number of excellent videos explaining the process. As you look at these you'll see yet more, listed on the right sidebar.
