Some transfer testing!

Leave a comment

I recently saw a post on FB whereby someone printed out an image (reversed) and transferred onto a wooden object.  Ever keen to give these things a go, I tried it out on the back of a tray that I had already painted with Annie Sloan’s chalk paint in Old White and Paloma.   Firstly, I inadvertently used the wrong glue and will use mod podge when I experiment again.  I left it overnight and then wet the paper, rubbed off the excess and the transfer had ‘transferred’ onto the tray. Unfortunately, some of the image has rubbed off but since this is my first attempt, I am fairly pleased with the result and it lends to the shabby chic look!

Please have a look around my lovely shop on Etsy where you can buy limited edition prints, camera accessories, notebooks and trays. Mapp of London came about through my love of photography – all the products are either my own photos or designed by me to fulfill my needs as a photographer. I hope you will agree with me that these are unique and lovingly crafted items.
