    • Hi Janine –

      Sorry we missed your comment from a couple weeks ago. And thank you for taking the time to let us know about your disappointment around this. We definitely realize that many people came to depend on and enjoyed using our Digital Grounds, so our decision to no longer sell them was not an easy one. The good news is that another product on the market, InkAid (http://www.inkaid1.com), performs similarly and all the various techniques or processes you developed with our Digital Grounds should be doable with their offerings. And as always, if there is anything else we can do to help, just let us know.

  1. I prepared a wooden panel with gesso and then white fluid acrylic. I transferred directly onto the surface but unfortunately I did not add enough regular gloss gel to the transfer and panel so in sections it is peeling.

    I do not care about the background sections that are peeling since I only want the transferred text.

    Can I cover the area with GAC 500 or another product to seal the transfer to stop it from peeling? After it is sealed I want to continue painting on top of the transfer with fluid acrylics.

    Thank you for your help.

    • Hi Shireen –

      Its hard to glue something down from the top and what we would recommend is trying to get some gel or medium under the transfer so you can press it back down and get it to stick. That would be the best way by far, Just coating the top will still leave the transfer with areas lifting away from the board, and that might come off looking distorted. If there are areas where you cannot get to from the side – say there is a bubble in the middle that is lifting – then you can cut a small slit with an X-acto blade, inject some medium or Gel, then push the area down, covering it with a piece of plastic sheeting and some weight.

      Hope that makes sense – let us know if it doesn’t, or if you have any other questions.
