Interesting technique, but I wonder what if any effect will the acetone have on the w/c paper and or paint over time?
Cheers, Val

Interesting is it not.  Did you ever use this method Nolan/Dennis

Val I do not know if it would affect the paper or pigment. 

Sharon I liked the brush too, could not see it in the store today.

Talking about tracing.  In photo for artists I did 2 paintings of 2 baby cats. One in WC and the other in CP and I had the odacity  :idiot2: to say that I did it free hand.  Well that was a no no for a few artists.  One lady said i only use a pencil and an eraser to do my art nerver, never trace or use a grid or other tools.    :-\ :-\.   I edit my comment after, so I would not get blasted again.   ::)

Danielle, that is absolute hogwash! If she is that perfect, well good for her. She is better than many of the old masters! They used many different variety of tools... and even invented them for that matter. Not to get nit-picky, but pencils and erasers are tools, the paper, canvas, or board we use are also tools of the trade, as are our brushes, paint, and inks. To say one never uses any tools is a bit foolish.  :doh:

Pay no mind Danielle. You do incredibly beautiful work, and I'm sad to say you will most likely come across more than a few so called experts who will do their best to knock you down. Look at it this way, perhaps you are being perceived as a threat in competition. Keep doing what you are doing and use any and all tools available to you. You make so many people happy by showing and making your work available to them.  O0
One sour grape doesn't spoil the bunch....just toss it out!  ;)     ;D

I have not used it before Danielle, but I think I may just have to give it a try.

I have used the method of pasting a paper to the canvas with texture gel and using water to remove the paper in mixed media artworks, but not the acetone method, that is new to me.

How did I miss this post?! I am definitely going to try this technique--on the back of one of my failed paintings.

As to the whole issue of transferring images, Danielle, I am sorry a small-minded person said that to you. Some people are very self-important and like to consider themselves "purists." You are a fine artist-- transfer or free-hand!

Good reply Val!   After all we ARE the bunch and we know. We have been tought by master painters ourselves.

If pur, acetone should fully evaporate at room temperature.  I will watch the video later.

If you work very big and use it often, minimize contact with skin. It is absorbed thru the skin.  And as always with volatiles, good air circulation.
Cheers, Annie

Didn't want to buy a can of acetone if I am not going to use it, so I'll give it a try with nail polish remover which is mostly acetone. Perhaps the wash with slightly soapy water removes some of the traces of acetone on the paper?
