I have been reading about use ink jet printer transparencies in collage and was interested.
I thought I could use some of my own photographs in their original form or digitally altered by me in either color or black and white.
I stopped at Office Max today to see about purchasing some. The 50 pack was $40 which was too steep a price for me. They also had a 20 pack with 5 free sheets for $26. That was still too steep a price for me.
I would like to play around with some sheets and imagine I’d use less than five. If I was to resize the images in Photoshop I could make them small to use on 2.5 x 3.5 inch artist trading cards and then could fill an entire sheet full, print that off, and use all those images, it seems like a lot of images for the tiny canvas sizes of an ATC.
That is one art experiment that will have to wait for another day.
(I was thinking of using them for ink jet copier transfers as well as to use as regular transparent images as overlays.)
I am not complaining, I have a lot of art supplies already on hand and I can work with those. It is time that I am in short supply of, really. Anyway I just thought I’d share this tidbit about the price in case someone else is wondering what those blank transparency sheets cost!
