Can polaroid lifts or transfers be done on clothing (i.e. t-shirts)? : LUSENET : polaroid transfers : One Thread

I saw someone with an image lift on his t-shirt. Does anyone know how this is done. He mentioned how he thought that the person who made it had used some kind of chemical either under or on top of the transfer. Has anyone done this that might have some suggestions for me?

It's actually really easy. Just take a 100% cotton t-shirt and prewash it a few times to shrink it and get the sizing out. Then do the emulsion transfer with the shirt wet. Let it dry slowly and then seal both sides with gel medium. It turns out to be even marginably washable if you're realy careful.
