When you build you need new tools and equipment, one of which is a spray booth for professional finishes. There are many DIY variations for spray booths and how they are made. I decided to make one from pallet wood. I used one picture from Pinterest as inspiration for my spray booth. […]
This is my latest decoupage / mod-podge project. I used some techniques that I have enjoyed and combined them into this sign.
I used some reclaimed 1×4 wood that i had from other projects and simply nailed them to a couple 1×2’s for backing.
Next I got some chalk paint and applied it to the wood. Through my trial and errors I discovered that when you apply your image with the mod-podge and go to the removal of pulp step you will remove the chalk-paint as you remove the pulp.
TIP You need to seal the paint before you add your your image that you want to transfer. I have used lacquer to seal the paint. You can use other things such as polycrylic.
After you add your image to transfer and it has dried over night you can safely remove the white pulp by gently using a wet cloth.
When you expose the image and have removed most of the white pulp, I use my fingers to remove the remaining paper being careful not to rub too hard and remove your transfer image.
Let it finally dry and you should see your image. If there is a little white leftover just wet your fingers and gently rub the remaining paper away.
For me it was alot of trial and error to get the procedure down right.
