Step 1: Set It Up
- your ideal pic printed onto tissue paper (use a light spray of adhesive to tack the tissue to card to be able to feed it through a printer)
- pva glue
- piece of pallet wood
- sandpaper for wood (medium)
Use whatever you have handy (I use my hands....but a brush or sponge is fine) to apply a layer of pva to a lightly sanded piece of wood (not too thick, just to cover the plank).
With your photo printed to size, move to the next step.....
Step 2: Make It Happen
You can use a dry foam roller or something else gentle enough to assist in placing the tissue without bubbles or creases; you'll get the hang of it! and don't fret too much, sometimes it adds to the look!
Once it's down, you can either very gently apply a layer of glue over the top, or wait until it dries to do so. I do it immediately as I feel if it dries along with the bottom layer it has a better bond (I could be wrong, that's just my preference).
Leave it dry 24 hours, give it a light sandpaper to remove any edges or rough areas.
Now you can add a hook for hanging, place it on a stand or even make something further out of it like a planter or a key hook!! The possibilities are up to you!
