Liquitex Metal Picture Transfer and Elmer's glue wood art
Today on Good Things Utah, I am going to be demonstrating this magnetic picture frame stand to show 2 fun techniques I learned!
Picture (I used one taken at Camera Shy) Oh, BY THE WAY! They are opening a NEW location in West Jordan so they will now be in West Jordan AND in Lehi! Sooo excited to see the new set up there!
Metal picture holder with wood base (found at Wood Connection)
Liquitex gel medium (found on Amazon)
Metal Picture transfer:
PHOTOCOPY your picture. I just printed a picture I had taken of my kids at Camera Shy (LOVE that I can just print pictures for my crafts because they give me the CD) and took it to the copy store. YOU HAVE TO USE A LASER COPY! I tried ink jet, it does NOT work :( Print your picture backwards because it will be backwards on the metal when transferred.
Draw the design you would like to have on the wood with a pencil
Using Elmers glue, carefully trace the drawing, allow to dry completely. I actually did 2 coats.
Paint the wood the color of your choice.
You can leave it with just the subtle design or you can water down some brown paint so it fills in the gaps and accents your design!
