DIY Home Decor – How to Photo Transfer


Transfer your favorite photographs to wooden
canvas surfaces using these easy photo transfer techniques. First, we’re going to transfer
an image to a piece of wood. You’ll need a wood piece, an image printed in reverse from
a laser printer at a copy shop, gel medium, a foam brush, a spoon, water, a rag, and clear
sealer. Brush a thin layer of gel medium on top of your photo. Carefully lay your photo
face-down onto the wood, and smooth out any air bubbles with a spoon. Let your project
sit and dry, at least 8 hours. Now it’s time to soak your photo transfer. Press a wet rag
on top of your photo making sure the image is completely soaked. Use your fingers to
carefully rub off the paper fibers. Once your photo transfer is dry, brush on a layer of
clear sealer to protect it. This process also works on canvas. Set your finished photo transfer
project in a pretty place, and enjoy.
