October Country - Polaroid Transfer on Marble Tile

October Country

Having fun with another Polaroid Transfer on marble tile. The photo was originally taken on a rainy day walk in Ormelle, Italy. (same town where the bicycle tile photo was taken)

I love playing with Polaroid transfers. To create this piece, the polaroid is heated in a hot water bath until the emulsion comes loose from the paper backing. The transparent image floats in the water & you can then place it on your choice of surface. In this case, I laid it upon a 4" piece of marble.

This was one of my older pieces that needed some reworking. So I went over the image with markers, paints, colored pencils & ink. It still needed something until I pulled the Italian Script stamp from Judikins. (Definitely my favorite stamp lately).

October Country measures 4" sq and has hanging hardware attached to the back. It is available at ArtSnark.etsy.com - just click either photo for details. All of these reworked tiles are priced to sell at $10 each. (I'm trying to make some elbow room around here)

  2. I've been eyeballing the Polaroid transfers you've been posting. They look awesome!

    My question is where on earth do you find them? I haven't seen a Polaroid in ages. I was thinking the same thing when they published something about them in a magazine.

  8. Jennifer, I thought same thing, I have a past client that likes to buy up Polaroids, and I'm thinking "good luck", flea markets I guess. Stacey, I love the way you are reworking these pieces!

  9. I really like this, Stacey! I can imagine a grouping of these on a wall.

  10. WOW, that is absolutely amazing!
