How to Transfer an Image to Stone - This is Super Cool!
Arts and crafts supplies have really come along way since I started in the craft business. There are so many cool and wonderful ideas for creating beautiful and yes, sellable crafts.
For years wood and paper crafts have been a wonderful addition, but recently, creating crafts with stone or tiles has really gone wild. You can make everything from coasters to wall hangings to whatever you want with stone as now transferring an image is a lot easier. Plus you can get the stone tiles at your local hardware store or even online.
If you love to draw or paint or even coming up with your own sayings as with "word art" then you are going to love this transfer medium that I have found that works wonderfully on stone.
Below is a video to show you how to use the product, but keep in mind a couple of things. Always create your photocopy using "mirror image" so that when you place it face down in the medium it will read the right way. Also don't use expensive thick paper. Find the cheapest copy paper you can buy as it makes it easier to rub off afterwards.
Also, don't get the medium on the back of the paper as it will be hard to rub off. Be careful to make sure it has set into the medium but try not to smear any on the paper.
Enjoy the video and see just how wonderful this product is. You can get it online below.
just click the above title to find out more about this transfer medium. This product works on many surfaces, but also works well on stone, and can also be used as a sealer afterwards as it dries clear. It is best to use it on unfinished tile rather than shiny.
These stone tiles would be perfect for any of your own original drawings or paintings. You could shrink then down to size and photo copy them using the mirror image and then transfer them to stone tiles. This would give your art an extra market.
Useable art does seem to find a market. So instead of simply framing that drawing, why not create some items with it using image transfer medium? You could create stone or wood coasters as well as tote bags and more. With a product like this, ideas are endless.
