How to tranfer a photo into wood
DIY & Crafts
Sometimes instead of painting or drawing something that has quite a high probability of turning out terrible, I think it’d be cool to take a photo and transfer it onto a block of wood or canvas. Fortunately enough, there is a really easy way to do this that is simple and ends up looking really cool. All you need for this project are the materials and the funds for those materials.
You will need a gel medium, such as Liquitex Gloss. There are quite a few varieties of this gloss, but from all the tutorials I’ve seen, all seem to use the Gel Medium Gloss, which dries clear but glossy (obviously). You will also need Mod Podge (typical for any project I seem to do…it’s my favorite!), a paint brush, your photo printed with inkjet ink and regular paper, a washcloth or sponge and either canvas or wood or whatever it is you want your photo to be transferred on (but preferably a hard, smooth surface of some kind).
To do this project, first you paint a layer of the gel on your solid surface. Place your picture image-side down on the gel and let it dry overnight. The next day, come back to your project and wet down your surface to peel off the paper. The paper should come off fairly easily. Then coat your image with the Mod Podge as a finish
With that you’ve just created an awesome piece of wall art fit for any room! Some other things to consider when making this project: if you don’t want to print your picture yourself, you can go to Kinkos and get your photo blown up to make an even larger piece of art. This is what I want to try next because I think it’s the perfect way to make a poster or cool image for your room, kitchen or living room.
