How To Transfer A Printed Picture To Canvas....

How To Transfer A Printed Picture To Canvas......

This is how I do my picture transfer and end hopes that you can do the same thing. This is a cool, neat and easy crafting project for any day of the week especially on those rainy days where you cant go out and enjoy the weather or those quite afternoon and/or evening at night when the kids are all tucked into bed and you have thing else to do.

So, lets get started....

The materials that you will need are:
  • Cutting Mat (Optional)
  • Printed Picture to fit canvas size
  • Scissors
  • Mod Podge
  • Brush (foam brush is better but only had the paint brush at the time and it worked perfectly fine.)
  • Canvas 
  • Cup of Water
  • Fingers (I used a rag to wipe the paper off
  • Drying Time
Let's get this Project started:

First, you are going to your computer and print out a picture to either the size you want or to the size of the canvas, you have on hand or gotten from the store

After you  have printed out the picture of your choice and the size that you want, cut picture to the size of the canvas.
Then take your brush and Mod Podge and dip the brush into the Mod Podge. Make sure you get a good amount on the brush because you do need to cover the whole Canvas.
Start, by covering part of the canvas because the Mod Podge does kinda dry quickly.
Now, take you picture and lay it on open making sure the corners match up and the picture is centered where you need it to be.
Then, use a little more Mod Podge on the canvas, then smoothing it out and make sure the corners match up.
Now, what you want to do is make sure that all the corners are matched  up and you might have to put a little extra Mod Podge in the corners to make sure they stick and dry to the canvas.
This is what it should look like when you have Mod Podge the picture to the Canvas. Now you want to let it completely dry, best bet is to let it dry over night. Now you can check on ever so often to see if its dry. I guess it really depends on how much glue you stuck on the canvas.
Now, After you have let it dry completely get a some water and towel.
Now, dip the cloth in the water.
Blot the picture to get it wet.
Then, lightly rub the paper.
Then, softly rub the paper off the canvas and try not to rub to hard, as you can tell in the one corner I rubbed a little  to hard and some of picture came off.
Now, you are going to need to get Mod Podge and brush.
Dip brush into Mod Podge just enough to cover and not drip everywhere.
Then, start brushing evenly over the picture.
This is what it should look like when you have covered it over with Mod Podge. Let dry over night or whenever it is dry. 
This is my picture!!
