DIY wooden picture
hi I enjoyed your comment. My laser printer ink is waterproof. Is that what I'm supposed to use? Thanks in advance
DIY screen printing
80g regular office paper worked just fine for me.
So mu daughter in her infinite wisdom Places the picture face down then dod the medium gel. And it is drying. HOW can i save this picture.. it is stuck well to the wood. Will this image rransfer ? Or shoukd we toss it n start over ..
mine too. That is why I am here looking for tips. Not all over just here and there but I do not like the way it looks after. Tips?
I only use mod podge medium (^^^the yellow bottle in the video) with photos printed to paper on laser printer only. And you have to let them dry 24 hours, longer if its humid. Everyone has turned out beautiful. do have to watch placement if there are knots in the wood.
Can I speed up the drying with a hair dryer?
I used acrylic gloss medium the first time I did this simply because it's what I had, and it worked just fine. Most tutorials recommend gel medium, but if you have some other acrylic medium lying around, I'd say try that first before going out to buy a different one.http://www.art-is-fun.com/acrylic-mediums/A friend of mine tried it with some matte medium she had, and that also worked fine for her. Seems the type of medium is not that critical. I think the most important aspects of this method are 1.) Make sure you use a LASER printer 2.) Let dry completely and 3.) Don't rub too hard or you may accidentally remove parts of the image.TIP: If you only have an inkjet printer, perhaps you want to give this method a try: http://www.instructables.com/id/Image-Transfer-to-...
