Image to canvas transfer with Mod Podge
I came across this on Facebook the other day, courtesy of Mod Podge Amy herself (hi!). I traveled to two blogs that explained this process wonderfully. They are…Creative Carmella and Life Without Whiteout.
Here’s what I came up with!
It’s such a great procedure I’m kind of embarrassed I haven’t encountered it before now. First, you have to print an image.
An antique key from The Graphics Fairy? Sure, you bet. Just remember that you will be flipping your image over, so letters won’t work. Unless you know how to make a mirror image, at which point I will say I’m not worthy of you, and ask you how you did it.
Get your trusty Mod Podge and paint over your canvas, and your printed image. Then flip your image over onto the canvas…Mod Podge to Mod Podge. Smooth out your paper and leave alone for at least a half hour. I made granola while I was waiting today (yummy).
Get a damp cloth, slightly wet the canvas, and peel off the paper. Your image will stay on the canvas! Excellent, right? Right.
The peeling part is a little time consuming and messy, but totally worth it.
I played around with a silver marker, some self stick black pearls, and fibers. Not too shabby for my first attempt at this process. I am definitely trying it again soon.
I hope you all enjoyed your Mother’s Day festivities today!
