I have been experimenting lately with doing image transfers to solid surfaces – mainly wood.
I found a method that I absolutely love because the results are stunning and it’s relatively easy to accomplish.
It involves using clear gel medium and output from a laser printer.
This is the results of one of my trials – it’s one of my favorite photos of my wife and our really good friends, out one night at a local bar.
Image was placed on a solid piece of White Oak measuring 11×8 1/2 inches and just under an inch thick.
Finish was a simple coat of spray lacquer.
Simple, but a very nice effect! I can see potential here for some future client orders.
If there’s enough interest in this, I’ll create a blog while doing my next one – just LMK!
PS: For those interested in how this was done, I am putting up a multi-part blog on this process. Part One can be found here: http://lumberjocks.com/KnotCurser/blog/36527
