Default From Scrap to a Wall Hanger

I've been playing around with ink transferred prints on wood. It's not as difficult as I expected. I made this one for a coworker's wedding anniversary.

All together I have about an hour's labor in this one. Quick $20 from a scrap piece of pine.

I use an inkjet printer.......that's the key.
Using a waxed paper like an Avery Lable page.....with ALL the labels removed. Print image on the slick side of theage.....the side the labels were removed from.
DO NOT TOUCH THE PRINTED PAGE......it will smear.
Carefully line the paper up on your boardand then press it down.....careful not to let it move.
I use a credit card to rub the back of the page to apply the ink to the board. Then irub it with my hand to make sure it's all spread out onto the board.
While holding part of the paper still, gently raise the othe part to check for full application. If partnof the picture did not transfer then gently lower the page back down and rub that area till satisfied... Then check the rest of the board the same way.
When satisfied with complete application, remove the paper. Allow the ink to dry before applying a clear coat.

There are better instructions and videos on how to do this on YouTube.....that's where I got the idea.

Now that's pretty cool! I would have never thought to try something like that. Thanks for sharing.

Lately I have been using parchment paper to transfer inkjet patterns onto wood for routing signs and it is working pretty good for me.

I have not tried that paper. I'll give it a try.

Next time I head to your neck of the woods I will let you know. Maybe we can meet for a cup of coffee or a cold beer.
