Image Transfer with Frenchic Finishing Coat
Doodledash Image Transfer Tips - using Frenchic Finishing Coat
- Firstly, paint your project with the colour of your choice from the Frenchic Chalk & Mineral paint range. Seal your piece, with Frenchic Finishing Coat, and allow to dry. Sealing first will allow you to complete the image transfer process without damaging your paintwork as you go.
- Once dry (you can use a hairdryer to speed things up) measure up your chosen image against your project. Note, your image should be either printed on a laser printer or a toner based photocopier.
- Check that your image will fit the space you have available and trim if needed. Remove as much of the excess paper around the image as possible.
- Coat the area where the image is to be applied with Frenchic Finishing Coat and gently coat the image with it too (on the printed side).
- Gently press the image down on to your project (print side down) and push out any bubbles in the paper that might restrict transference of the ink.
- Allow to thoroughly dry. If you can leave overnight this is preferable but once again you can speed the process up with a hairdryer.
- Once completely dry, wet the paper with water and gently rub in a circular motion with your finger tips to remove the paper, leaving the image on your project. You may find that you will need to do this a few times. Take it gently, you don’t want to rub your image away!
- Once you are happy that most of the paper has been removed you can seal your project with more Frenchic Finishing Coat.
You now have a fabulous image transferred project that is unique to you!
This technique can also be used directly on to wood, ceramic and fabrics.
