AS I WAS TAKING THE SKIN OFF THE YUPO PAPER IT RIPPED WHAT HAPPENED?
The gel layer is probably too thin, but you might be able to fix the tear. Lay the skin back onto the Yupo sheet. Using the palette knife, spread an even layer of the soft gel over the skin. Wait until it has dried completely before trying to pull it off again.
If you created a large skin, don’t pull it all off at once. Pull a section and let it breathe for a while, then pull some more.
MY DESIGN IS SMEARING HOW CAN I FIX THAT?
Add some extra layers of workable fixative. Be sure to let each layer dry thoroughly before adding the next.
I KEEP GETTING INDENTS ON THE SKIN SURFACE HOW CAN I AVOID THOSE?
This phenomenon is know as crazing. You can avoid this by layering 2 or 3 thinner coats of the soft gel. Let each layer dry thoroughly before adding the next.
A Word From the Authors:
"There are basic ways to create transfers: glues and mediums, heat, solvents, and assorted methods from stenciling to rusting. When you can use all the different methods, you can choose which method will best meet your needs. It is like having a brand new toolbox filled with everything you want. You might use a single technique or combine several to get your desired results. Knowledge is your best asset: Understanding why some things work or don’t work can lead you to break the rules and make new discoveries. Our greatest hope is that you explore and accept all those possibilities—including the happy accidents. We encourage you to play, create and let us know what you discover." — Darlene Olivia McElroy & Sandra Duran Wilson
