How To: Photo Transfer to Stretched Canvas

I’ve been doing a lot of photo transfers recently. Trying different methods and experimenting with different materials. I love the vintage bi-product of this transfer process. For a college class, I had to create a set of instructions and picked transferring a photo to canvas partly because I’ve been doing it so much and partly because I could share it here for everyone else. It’s simple, cheap and super fun to do. You only need a few things, and if you are an artsy type you probably have them already. You may not have a laser jet printer at home, but more than likely know someone who does. Toner lasts FOREVER so don’t be afraid to ask a friend.

I won’t bore you — without further delay:

Ps. If you have any questions or ideas for more How To articles, send them my way!

  3. H! Can’t wait to try this, does it matter if your canvas is already gessoed?

    Thanks for sharing.
