Mixed media image transfers on wood and canvas. A great way to display your favorite photos or add interest to your mixed media projects.
Mixed Media image transfers are an easy way to add a personal touch to your home decor. This tutorial will show you how to create a mixed media image transfer on wood or canvas.
If you’re not familiar with the process, it’s basically just taking an image from your computer and transferring it onto another material using a gel medium.
The first thing you need to do is find a picture you want to use as your transfer. If it is small enough, you can print it out yourself at home or take it to a professional printer if you want something larger or higher quality. I usually use a laser jet printer for this step. Watch to learn more.
Here are some materials you will need:
- Wood or canvas board
- Image printed on laser paper
- Gloss Gel Medium or Mod Podge
- A soft rag
- Spray bottle for water
