If you’re looking for a different and unique way to display and show off your photos, why not transfer them to a piece of wood? They look really beautiful and they make wonderful gifts. We’ll show you 3 different ways they can look.
When finished it looks like the photo is part of the wood, not just glued on the top . The pictures can be color or black and white, and you can use regular, fresh-cut wood, weathered or pallet wood, and you are not limited by a standard size. It can be any size you’d like.
This is a great idea for mounting pictures from your phone camera and even from Instagram.
Supplies you’ll need:
- Picture printed on very thin paper
- Mod Podge
- Piece of wood cut in the size you want
- Gel Medium – Liquitex Gloss Gel
- Foam brushes
