Plastic animals

I’ve got a soft spot for those little realistic plastic animals.

I sometimes photograph them out in the wild:

More magnets using an image transfer technique

This youtube video is a good demonstration of the packing tape image transfer technique:

Use laser prints. Cut out print. Carefully lay face down onto sticky side of packing tape. Turn over and burnish with a popsicle stick or bone folder so that all the ink adheres to the tape. Rinse under water to wet the paper backing. Let sit for a minute. Rub off the paper backing gently, wet again when needed. Keep rubbing until the paper fibers are gone. Let dry. There may be a few bits of fiber but it shouldn’t be a problem. If after you let it dry, there’s too much fiber, wet and rub again.

Here are a couple of my image transfer magnets that I’ve used as geoswag:

Packing tape transfers wooden coin magnets. Laserjet copier images cut out and laid face down onto the sticky side of packing tape. Rub with popsicle stick so image is firmly on packing tape. Wet the back with water. Let soak in for a minute. Carefully rub the paper backing off until you are left with only the image.
