and what you mean by transfers from inkjet?

using prepared polyester sheets (digital negs) as a carrier for the inkjet print, one can transfer the inkjet print to an aquarel paper.

In a review in the Oregonian this weekend, there was a description of photographs that were inkjet prints that were then transferred to canvas using acrylic medium to lift and transfer the image, with a result that "resembles an encaustic painting."

Using acrylic medium results in an emulsion transfer, like the well-known polaroid transfer (transferring the 'skin' of an well developed polaroid to a carrier).
If you want an image transfer (like the one in polaroid transfers: before developing is complete, transfer the wet 'RGB-layers' to a damp carrier) you have to prepare the inkjet sheet with Golden Acrylic Flow release and then transfer to a carrier.

I haven't seen the work in question, so can't evaluate the claim, but there's another possibility for a creative person to exploit.

Hopefully in the next half a year,
