We start by rolling out a layer of paint on to the gel plate and then pressing the image in the magazine on to the surface. Peel off the magazine image and the paint should show the transfer on to the gel plate. Press a piece of cartridge paper over the top of the plate to complete the transfer.

This activity could be extended by using multiple images on the one late or by creating background layers and completing multiple prints that are layered over the top of each other.
