"I've been transferred," cried the four signs.
Using waxed paper transfers.
Yes, one of the advanced, but still so easy, waxed paper transfer projects.
I was saving this oak table top for the perfect base which I never found before the top split into four pieces.
Oh, well, perfect for signs.
Perfect for transfers!
Cleaned, sanded, and painted with ...
Folks, I still have 3/4 of a gallon left so many projects to go with this color.
The links to the tutorials on how to print your transfers are below this post.
Some of you asked if you could print more than one transfer on one sheet of paper.
Yes, you can.
Cut them apart - I leave the paper backing so I can remember which side has the ink on it.
After deciding the placement, you have one chance to get it right so get it right the first time.
You will notice I used a graphic of blue dresses.
Yes, you can print the transfers in color.
Typography is printed in reverse so when you place it, the words are read left to right as normal - the ink is on the back side.
Large blue hydrangeas.
Transferred to a sign board.
Think Monet - the images will not be sharp when you have heavy brush strokes.
A sheet of nine purple hydrangeas.
Yes, you can layer the transfers.
Here I transferred the bee image over the purple hydrangeas.
One on each end of the sign.
Stamped the obvious - "BEES" in the middle over the purple hydrangeas.
Stamped this sign with a quatrefoil design in black and used a blue distress ink.
All designs were sprayed with a matte spray - two coats.
One coat of satin craft varnish was added.
As second look at the second sign.
A close up because this is my favorite.
I've been transferred onto four signs.
I am off to do more.
I'll keep you posted.
