Re: Photos transferred to wood

What is the finished product? Is the acetate put into a frame or something?

 

im kinda confused. You put oil on the acetate, put it through the printer, the ink doesn’t stick to... what?

 

and are you calling mod podge glue or is there glue used too?

Re: Photos transferred to wood

 You put a very thin smear of oil and the printers ink goes on to it because it is sprayed on but doesn't stick so when you put it on to your wood which is coated with your adhesive of either modpodge that is a craft adhesive that is usually used for this which can be found on ebay or even a varnish that is still wet and the ink is easily transferred on to the wood as you carefully remove the acetate allow it to dry then overcoat with a clear finish youtube has lots of information good luck

Re: Photos transferred to wood

Sorry about the delay in replying.... unfortunately my answer is no, I don't have any photos to share.  

The process was done many years ago when I was an electronics communications technician. Some of my work was in remote locations, so one had to be innovative because some items weren't readily available, but "the show" had to go on.   Also at hobby level, I sometimes made my own HIFi gear to my own specifications, so needed to make custom labels, rather than just use amateurish looking stick-on labels.

Now retired from that, so I haven't needed to do it recently.

Re: DIY Photos transferred to pallet wood picture frames

Hi @Old-gal24.

 

Thanks for the tip! I'm not sure how new Mod Podge is as a brand in Bunnings, I'm pretty sure when I joined the discussion over a year and a half ago we didn't stock it. It's great to see it on the shelves, I'll have to pick some up soon.

 

Thanks again,

 

Mitchell

@MitchellMc  I have seen it in Bunnings for a while now.  I have an adult daughter with special needs and she loves to come to Bunnings with me as long as we go to the craft section, that's where I spotted it first.  :smile:

 

Cheers

This old gal
