How to transfer inkjet images to wood.

How to transfer images to wood using Mod PodgeI am so happy that I met Katie from Matsutake. It was just recently we began swapping e-mails. I already like her for a variety of reasons, including but not limited to her sense of humor. It seems a lot like mine. She’s also superbly talented, as demonstrated by her handmade creations. Finally, she’s from Minnesota, and experience has shown me that everyone from Minnesota is nice. Life holds no mysteries, dear readers.

Okay, maybe a few.

How to transfer images to wood with Mod Podge was actually a mystery in that I didn’t even know it could be done. I’m amazed that Katie figured it out and posted a tutorial on her blog – visit it right here. The applications for said transfers are endless, and I am envisioning pug transfers on a few things right now. Yay, thanks for the great new idea Katie!

    What a great tip! I thought you had to use a laser printer for transfers to work… so excited to know inkjet prints work too!! :)

    Interesting new method! I’ve been using t-shirt transfer paper to get my images on wood and then use Mod Podge for a nice glossy finish. In the process of trying alternative techniques to my method (using mod podge, of course!) but will need to try this one, too! –assuming dear hubby doesn’t freak when finding out that paper that has glue goes in the printer! We’ve had to replace the printhead a couple of times, so not sure if this idea will go over well!
