Photos of my daughter transferred onto Canvas
There are many photo transfer techniques and products that will do the trick, but this is what I used, Liquitex Matte Gel Medium.
First I made photo copies of my 5x7 photos, it has to be a laser photocopy done on a machine that uses toner. Keep in mine if the photo contains numbers or words, the image needs to be flipped ahead of time and copied that way, otherwise you'll have a backward number or word on your photo transfer.
Spreading a thin layer to throughly cover the canvas and making sure there are no air bubbles hidding did the trick, I really worked the photo copy onto the canvas from the center out to make sure it was adhered in all areas.
**Allow the Gel Medium to dry over night**
Spray water onto the attached photo copy, you'll notice you have enough water when you start to see the image show though. Use finger tips to roll away the moist paper revealing the image.
Continue spraying water and removing paper until the desired look is acheived. It took me three times of re-wetting to get the paper off that I wanted. If you rub too hard, you'll remove some of the image, but that's all part of the look if you ask me:)
While I was in the middle of the mess, I thought I would do a couple at the same time.
Now the canvases are ready to be rubber stamped on, made into wall hangings, or to become covers for a mini album.
