Printed Wooden Panels for Your Home (or how to decorate your house like a nerd)
I've made a few projects for family and friends over the past couple of years using this technique. Great instructable! The attached pictures are an example of some Christmas ornaments I made for my family last year. For the wood, I used some slices from the previous year's Christmas tree. :) Two changes I made: use a credit card to get ride of air bubbles and to firmly attach the image to the wood, and instead of Mod Podge, I used a couple coasts of spray-on polyurethane. I believe this would add a little more protection and you could achieve a high gloss finish if desired.

Thanks for this, I'll be using these instructions to mend a lovely wall-hanging planter that I managed to smash. One suggestion though - the idea of Kintsugi is to preserve much loved items that have been accidentally broken - it seems a little against the spirit of things to intentionally break an item in order to repair it!
DIY Faux Kintsugi
Great instructable... so I I made this... or I'm making it. Or them. I need to finalize the cleaning and then finish with polyurathane.I used Jpg photos. I changed them to grayscale in photoshop & reversed them. I also lightened them up...the first one I did came out way too dark. I didn't use my fingers to rub the paper off. First off, I just used a rag made from an old towel. That worked pretty good. Then I switched to using a soft bristle toothbrush. I really liked the way that worked. By this time I decided the transferred photo was pretty impervious, so I used a "safe for teflon) kitchen scrubber. One of those things that's an artificial sponge wrapped in an nylon nhet. I used some extra plywood I had kicking around the garage. Problem is, I couldn't sand out all of those kick marks. Even pretty minor scratches show up in the finished product.I cut the plywood to 8.5 X ll so a sheet of regular paper fit perfectly. I had two pieces where there wasn't enough plywood left so they are narrower. I found that after it was dried, and I wet the paper, I could peel off the first (otherwise messy) layer by lifting from the overhang. Does that make sense?At any rate, thianks for this instructable. It made me, my granddaughters, and my terriers happy. My wife, not so much. She wants the dining room table back.A
