I like this idea. This type of project would make great Christmas presents.

Certainly looks interesting, have you tried doing it? Could be in the New year project. Thanks for sharing.

This transferring has always intrigued me. Maybe I’ll give it a go through the winter months
Thanks Tony.

I thought Christmas was in 6 months for you grumpy.

The video was a little long but very good,

Couldn’t agree more Karson, sometimes I thought he would never finish it but he did a good explanation of the process.
Christmas 6 months away???. 42 C here yesterday (108 F). We had one of the hottest nights on record.
At least if I did this project today it would dry out quickly, LOL

That will be the day where I live Karson. Very unlikely.

I’ve tried this method several times, but could never get acceptable results. I always found there was more paper to remove after the picture dried. When I tried to add more water and rub lightly to remove the residual paper, the printed picture would start to come off like it did in a few areas of your picture. I finally gave up and tried a different method where you just transfer the picture from a wax piece of paper and there’s no rubbing. This method worked, but leaves very little room for error.

That’s interesting Steve. I would like to know more about the wax paper process. Do you have a link on the www or a bit more you can add?.
