Photo Transferring Onto Wooden Blocks

  • Okay so this does take some practice... First you'll need wooden blocks mine are 44mm cubes. Mog podge. A printer. Plain paper. Paint brush. Sponge. Water. Computer. Decorating paper. Paint or glitter.
    First you need to print off photos you want to use to match the size of your blocks on to plain paper (much easier than photo paper).
    Then you need to cut them to size, put mpg podge on the block and stick your photo, print side down onto the block.
    Be careful not to get any air bubbles! I found using a credit card helped remove the bubbles.

  • Do the above stages to the whole of your block or leave one side blank for decoration.
    Once your block is covered in your photos leave them to dry over night or at least for 8 hours!
    Here comes the fiddly part... Get your sponge wet and rub gently over your prints.
    Once completely wet, rub the prints with your fingers in a circler motion. Be care not to run too hard or the ink will come away from the wood. This step takes time but be patience and keep going until all the paper is off.
    Now your image is on your wooden block!
    Add a thin coat of mog podge to seal your work.

  • If you chose to decorate one side you can do almost anything.
    I chose to stick some decoration paper on mine, then used a light grey paint and glitter to spell out a word.
    If you do this step, leave until completely dry then seal with a thin layer of mog podge.

    Enjoy x
