Surfing the net I have found a post that explains how to transfer a photo to a canvas, the truth is that I am willing to do it, but I have so many diy pending that I do not know when I can, all the information you can find here: abeautifulmess, I have only translated step by step and used your photos.

Materials:

  • canvas
  • gel medium  transfer, the one used in the post is super thick glossy liquidex, there are several brands, you just have to look for a special transfer gel (which is what medium means) I have found this much cheaper in Spain, but you will surely find plus, manualidades espinacam.
  • brush
  • the picture you want to transfer  (laser copy)
  • an  spray lfull of water

Remember that the picture will print as opposite

  • pasos

 

Step 1:

Cover completely the canvas with gel medium

Step 2:

Press the laser copy on the canvas (with the picture looking to the canvas, of course) y dejala secar toda la noche

Step 3:

When it is completely dry, use the spray filled with water to wet the paper with the photo.

Step 4:

Rub the surface with your fingers until the paper starts to peel off, patience takes, do not rub very hard to not remove the photo from the canvas, little by little you will see the photo on the canvas, continue until you have removed all the paper. Rub the surface with your fingers until the paper starts to peel off, patience takes, do not rub very hard to not remove the photo from the canvas, little by little you will see the photo on the canvas, continue until you have removed all the paper.

Step 5:

Cover the canvas with one more layer of the medium gel to seal and protect the image.

The transfer will not be perfect and two will never be the same, so do not choose a photo with much detail.

I’m looking forward to doing it!
