Pallet art has always been super cool to me! This week I decided to have my kids help out with some pallet transfer art:
I had my daughter and niece with me on some mornings this week and we decided to transfer one of their cousin photos onto a 6" x 8" ken oliver scroll pallet. Here is a collage of them at work:
A couple of tips on creating these:
- You have to use a laser transfer photo (or laser copy photo).
- If your photo has words on it you need to flip it before transferring to the pallet (or the words will be backwards on the print).
- Burnish your copy onto the pallet with firm strokes so that the transfer goes smoothly.
- A sponge makes an easy tool for removing the paper .
- Be careful around edges as the medium transfer can easily be broken there.
- Just when you think you have removed all the paper, there will be more that shows up. There is a fine balance between what you cam remove and what is left.
And when you are 7 and 8 and done, this is what it looks like:
