This weekend I've been making more of the grain sack pillows using the CitraSolv method of transferring images. You can find all the details about that here. So fun! While I was waiting for some pillow fabric to finish in the dryer I had an idea.
I found this cute little table at Goodwill last week. It was calling my name! So I took it home and couldn't wait to do something fun with it.
For some reason the previous owner had painted the edges with gold spray paint?? I gave it a coat of primer and then finished it with Heirloom White. And so it sat until today when my CitraSolv fumed brain thought I might try transferring an image to wood. My main concern was would the solvent eat through the paint? It is strong stuff! But I figured I can always repaint it, right?
So I took my image (from the Graphics Fairy) and taped it down like so, then dabbed on the CitraSolv.
My first attempt at burnishing made a mess, it just smeared all over. So wiped it off and reapplied with a lighter application and pressed the image gently, instead of rubbing like you do on fabric.
The result is a bit distressed looking, but that was my goal~ so it just saved me some sanding!! I am in love with the finished project!!!
