Tutorial for transfer of vintage photo reprint on brown paper
Using an ink jet printer is great; even using white paper. I made a bunch, of copies of my vintage photograph. I am not ready to use the original yet. I layered a thin layer of Golden's gel medium on the copy and on the brown paper. I turned the copy on top of the brown paper with the picture facing the brown paper. I used a bone folder to rub well and also a small wallpaper roller to flatten it really well, making sure there are no air bubbles. Be careful, the paper is fragile because it is only white copy paper.
