Introduction from the Author

Everyone is fascinated by the "transfer" process. Making something move from one place to another is a pretty cool trick by anyone's standards. Transfers allow for the seamless application of images and text on many surfaces, eliminating the cut edges and bumpy surfaces that are visible in traditional collage techniques.

There are many ways to make transfers, but for the most part I will be dealing with the most benign of them - those created by or enhanced with Acrylic products.

Whatever you thought you knew about transfers, or thought you could do with them, will be expanded by the techniques in these pages. My goal is for you to see the transfer process as another "tool" in mixed media techniques to use along with everything else you know.

This book is divided into two parts: 'The Process' and 'The Application'. To make the most of transfers, we will avoid working with non-archival products and stick to artist quality products in our adventure.

I am ready to get transferring. Aren't you?

Author Chris CozenAbout the Author

Chris Cozen is an artist with an innate understanding of color and design. She has 30 years of experience in teaching and program planning. Chris has learned that using one's creativity to approach problem-solving makes things go much easier. She utilizes this skill to develop opportunities for her students to 'discover' their own creative abilities.

She devotes her time and energy to the creative process. As a Working Artist for Golden Acrylic Colors. Chris finds her background to be a perfect complement when lecturing, teaching or designing a class about acrylic painting materials and techniques.

Her studio is brimming with pieces that tell stories about people, many enriched with pieces of family history. Collage and mixed media pieces lively with color, texture and movement dominate her studio walls.

She conducts workshops throughout southern California. Chris lives in California with husband Darrell, where she enjoys a wonderful garden filled with roses and fruit trees. Plentiful sunshine, a few cats and the company of friends. She has two married daughters.
