How to Transfer a Photograph Onto a Block of Wood

Here’s a quick and easy tutorial that’ll teach you a cool method of transferring a photo print (black and white or color) onto a block of wood.

You’ll want to use prints made with some kind of laser printer or copier rather than an ink printer. This method works great with LASER print copies, but not so much Ink Jet. The Ink Jet ink will smear, as it’s water soluble. I’m not sure why Modge Podge was used for the protective outer coating, when the Liquitex Gel she used would have sufficed. Liquitex products area available at any Michaels or Joann’s. Other products that will work with this are gel mediums from Golden. Available at the same stores.

Glue the paper face down onto the wood and then wash/wipe the paper away. The toner will then stick to the wood and give a really unique look.
