The Story

In 2003 Paul Fujita published the first website covering Acrylic Gel Medium transfers. Since that time there has been an explosion of step-by-step videos and instructional websites. Paul had learned various transfer techniques in college in the 90’s but was only introduced to acrylic transfers briefly in the late 90’s. After experimenting with what he knew about acrylic transfers he was able to develop his own technique, which is the same as the widely used method today. The mystery is that people knew about this technique before Paul invented it and it had shown up in works before he developed it. This obscurity is the basis for my senior project (http://www.catlin.edu/upper/senior-projects). With Paul’s help I decided to research the unknown history of the technique and also learn the technique and create some original works.
