Today I’m sharing a fun, in addition to fairly simple, photograph transfer projection alongside you. I’ve done a diversity of dissimilar ways of transferring images onto wood, cloth in addition to drinking glass in addition to fifty-fifty polaroid transfers, in addition to invention to ship service to a greater extent than inwards the future. For this projection I had an erstwhile bench that needed funktifying….
I started alongside a roughed upwards vintage bench. After stripping it in addition to sanding it down, I position i coat of primer on it. Once it dried, I painted 2 coats of a pale grayness (Universal Grey yesteryear Behr).
I chose an image, hence cropped in addition to sized it to hold upwards alongside the bench. I hence printed it inwards contrary (as a mirror image), hence that i time applied it would read correctly.
Working quickly, I applied a layer of Liquitex Medium Gloss Gel on to the bench, hence applied a coat to the front end the picture in addition to placed it confront downwardly on the bench. I smoothed out the bubbles, hence applied a coat of gel to the dorsum of the image. The bench dried over night.
Once the bench dried, I used a textured cloth, soaked inwards warm water, to gently rub off the “back” of the picture (the paper). Starting at the corners, I sat the moisture cloth on the newspaper in addition to permit it soak through a little, earlier rubbing it off. This procedure took virtually an hour. Once dry, I took a fine slice of sand newspaper to it, having taken all the newspaper off, to fossil oil it upwards a fleck equally well.
