Test Pin/Tutorial: How to put a photo on canvas.
|Get those corners!|
Then hurry and apply more Modge Podge on top of the photo, brushing back and forth over the entire photo because it will dry with some mini streaks in it. So you will notice spots that didn’t get an application. Then be sure to get the edges, which is very important because that’s one way it holds together well. Make sure to get into the creases and corners.
Make sure it’s all very even because although it dries clear, you will notice lumps and gumps if they’re not smoothed out.
|My husband thought this was a cool angle. We’re getting all
sorts of arsty over here!
As you can see I’ve used this for photos and for some art pieces. This scripture, however, doesn’t look too great with the grey. I should’ve used a darker grey or some other color. But as you can see, the principle is the same!
Before you go off and celebrate this simple, cheap craft, I suggest not using paper! Paper would make this cheaper than it already is, but I have tried it. Modge Podging paper onto canvas is not the way to go! It crinkled and stuck together and the ink smeared onto everything. It was awful. So go to a photo center and you should be good to go.
Another tip: I got my canvases at Wal-Mart 2 for $8. Add that up with the cost of the photo and each one is less than $10! Compare that to getting it actually printed on canvas and, well, it can’t be comparable!
This application has seriously changed my life. This is definitely a thumbs up for a great Pin!
