I have a question that I’m hoping someone can help me answer. I’m sure everyone but me knows how to do this and I’m making it harder than it really is so here’s my problem:
How do I transfer an image from a piece of paper to wood? I’ve seen some simple tutorials in blogland but can’t remember where. I’ve also googled this and it seems there are several methods, the simplest being to rub the back of your image with a pencil and then placing it on the wood and tracing over the darkened image. I’m sure you need to use some kind of tracing paper or carbon paper but for the life of me, I can’t seem to figure this out. I’m stumped (or maybe stupid!)
Here’s why I need to know: I have typed out a quote on the computer and enlarged it to the size I need, and taped the pages together for the proper size of my image. I also have an old piece of wood I got out of my mom’s yard that I’ve dry brushed and distressed and I want to transfer those words I typed to the piece of wood? Make sense?
I’m a very visual person and I hate trying to follow directions. So if anyone can give me a REAL SIMPLE way that I can do this, I would really appreciate it.
