Picture To Wood Transfer
What makes this process different from decoupage is that it looks as if the image is part of the piece not glued on top of it.
Picture to wood transfer. Paint a thick layer of the gel medium onto the front of your picture. Paint a medium layer of mod podge on the wood until it s completely covered. Lay the freezer paper ink side down onto the wood. You will need to trace around the wood slice and trim down the photo to fit onto the wood slice.
You ll print a photo out on a dry ink printer like laserjet or an hp. Make sure to coat the paper completely. Seal the photo to wood transfer with a finishing spray. Measure your wood size your photos accordingly and print on the glossy side of the white tattoo paper using the photo paper setting on your printer.
Do not re position once placed. Then press the photo down on top of the mod podge using a credit card or other object to press out any air bubbles. Use the side of your fist to rub the photo onto the wood to remove any air bubbles and ensure the photo completely transfers. Lay the picture face down onto the wood.
Set the photo on top of the wood face down so it lays flat on the mod podge. Transfer a picture to wood if you re wondering how to transfer photos to wood it s a relatively simple process. You ll paint a medium on the front of the photo and then smooth it onto an unfinished or painted surface. Press the photo onto the wood.
Cover the wood slice in a good layer of regular mod podge lay over the photo onto the mod podge and press to get out all the bubbles and wrinkles. I love the end result. What i found out is that most people say you can t use it with inkjet prints but only with the laser ones. And then wait 24 hours.
You can also paint the wood before you transfer your image. Run the edge of the credit card or boning tool across the back of the picture. Not too light and not too thick. Photo transfer using mod podge and glue this method allows you to use inkjet prints to be transferred to wood using mod podge a medium used to transfer images.
Use a damp cloth to wipe up any excess mod podge that leaks out from under the edges of the picture. You can put something heavy over to keep it smooth. Adhere your photo image to the wood with mod podge. Use a rubber roller or brayer to help flatten the picture.
Work your way outwards starting from the center.
