Hello everyone… Spring is coming soon in 3 weeks… I hope… 😀 Today I have a tutorial how to create a Painted Wood Burning Sign using digital stamp set, freezer paper, and inkjet printer. I hope you all can enjoy this post!
The digital stamp I used today is the Graciellie Design – Happy Moments, the one of the new digital stamps at Gracie’s Etsy shop. Working with digital images give you some options to resize the images to meet your needs for your projects.
I am super happy to find out that I can transfer the image printed with inkjet printer with freezer paper! Thankful for those crafty people on YouTube 😀
So, I open the flowers in jar image from the Happy Moments stamp set with my Silhouette Studio Designer Edition. I resized it to fit my medium size Walnut Hollow wood slice.
I cut out a piece of freezer paper into 8.5″ x 11″ (letter size paper) and put it in the paper trey on my printer. Some image you need to reverse before printing, but this one, I can go with both reverse or as is. I printed the the image on the shine side of the paper.
You need to be very careful not to touch the printed image because it is wet.
You can plug the wood-burning tool now to pre-heat it while getting the image transfer to the wood.
I trimmed the paper smaller with scissors. I taped the image on the wood. Centered the image before you really put it on the wood.
The next step is transferring the image. You need a big spool or wooden spatula. Using the back of the wooden spoon, gently rub over the image. By lifting up the paper, you check underneath the paper to see if the image get transfered all or not yet. If the image not all transfered yet, you put the paper back, tape it, and rub again with the spoon.
Once you are happy with the image, you can start trace the transfer imaged with the tool. I like to use the fine point when tracing images on wood.
When the tracing is done, you can leave it as wood-buring sign or you can continue to paint it with acrylic paints like I did on mine 🙂
To paint this wood, I used FolkArt Multi-Surface Acrylic Paints, Matte Gel Medium, Fine Detail Paint Brush, and Foam brush.
First, I painted the flowers and jar. Then, I painted the background with teal color and then when the first layer is dry, I painted again with the white.
Last step, I traced the image again with my wood-burning tool on every spot that got some paint, just to make sure the burned lines look good 🙂
The sign is done. I hope you all can enjoy and be inspired to create with digital stamps! Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!
