You asked for a tutorial on the transfer method I used for the canvas that was featured on Graphics Fairy- well here is how I did it.
Then I paint over top of that with 1-2 coats of cream colored paint.
Once that has completely dried I add a coat of Matte Gel Medium.
Don't put it on too thick, about the thickness of spreading butter on bread.
Now you need a copy of the image you wish to transfer. It has to be a copy, not a print from the computer. I take mine to Staples and get them copied, make sure that if you have an image with writing that you get a mirror image.
Place your copy, image side down, onto the canvas. Do this right after you have spread the gel medium on, it has to be wet. Press the image down and rub away any air bubbles.
Let the canvas dry completely. I usually let it dry overnight.
Once it is completely dry, you dampen the paper with water.
Once it is wet, start peeling off the paper gently.
The paper will peel off and leave the image on your canvas.
You may have to rub it a bit to get all of the paper fibers off.
After you are finished with that, sand, paint, antique- whatever you like. :)
Give it a try, it is a lot of fun. Any questions, please let me know.
Thanks again for stopping by!
