x is for xerox

First of all, I must say that it’s good to be back. This poor, little neglected blog has been weighing on my mind for months upon months. I have missed it desperately, and yet time was too sparse to allow me to find my way back here.

At last, my life is beginning to feel like my own again. And, so…onward! X, my friends, is for Xerox.

I must admit that I was certainly relieved when Xerox popped into my head. It would have been a bit of a stretch to say that xylophones or x-rays really inspire me.


When Mandi taught me how to do Xerox transfers, I was immediately hooked. The rustic look is so appealing, and it adds a fabulous dimension to collages. All it takes is some simple black and white photocopies, a blender marker, and a little elbow grease. If you want the exact scoop, let me know. I’d be happy to escort you into the fabulous world of Xerox transfers.

oh yes! Whenever I do a xerox project I think of you. Did I tell you I have to do a whole xerox book in my letterpress class???

Very cool.
I have come to love this transfer technique. It makes even the simpleton artist, such as myself, feel very creative.
Caution: Use blender marker in a well ventilated area!

I would totally love to learn how to do that! I didn't realize you could do so much with Xerox. And I've never heard of blender markers before.

hooray for blender markers at jerry's artarama! and i must agree with whoever wrote the comment about using the marker in a well ventilated area. i have had way too many lightheaded experiences from lack of fresh air and i don't recommend it to anyone :)
