okay, so here's my first attempt at a little tutorial!
i recently scanned a lot of old pics of my family and wanted to put them to use... i found these great wooden boxes at ikea [$5 in as-is!!] and remembered playing around with wood transfers when i was younger, figured it was about time to try it out again!
what i used:
acrylic medium [i used liquitex gloss medium & varnish $5-$10]
plain white paper
paint brush [or your hand!]
1.start by putting together a handful of pics you want to transfer, and raise the contrast or saturation if you think they need it... and make sure you reverse the image!!!
then print them out on plain ol' paper with your inkjet printer
[transferring can dull the pictures so the higher your gradient range the better, you'll notice some of mine didn't work so well]
2. sand the surfaces u want to transfer onto if its rough
3. grab your acrylic medium and brush onto the wood
