My Coasters

I made these awesome coasters!!! I had Gabe, my talented woodsmen boyfriend cut me the wood! Then I printed Laser Printed photos from Staples. And transferred the images to the wood with Gel Medium from Michaels. This is a project that I had been dying to do for a long time. Some came out better then others. I hope to transfer more images to different pieces of wood for christmas presents. 

1. Paint a generous coat of the gel medium on the wood
2. Press the image down on the gel medium and let dry for 4 hours
3. Wet the image down with a wet wash clothe and rub away the paper

And there you have it. 

Paint a coat of the vintage mod podge over it, or the regular. I tried both and loved them both.
