Laura – That sucks for you. Let me know if you do and it works! take the nose of pen cap and trace the transfer. You just want the ink to not stick to it. I make a lot of signs so this will definitely come in handy. Once your graphic is printed on the sheet, lightly wet your subject with a sponge. Sorry, I’m not more help! Thank you! Thanks for following!! I am just wondering how long the transfer last? Crafty Hugs, Pendra What if you put athin towel or something over it and ironed it on? It is easier to use vinyl cuts for single color designs. If you have any empty label pages with the waxy film, they work too. I had thought of wax paper before but never tried it now I will. Maureen, I would love for you to share it! I think both sides of your board look nice. If you are using The Graphics Fairy, most of the time she has a transfer image attached. How do you reverse the print? Brittany, I haven’t tried that!! I would highly suggest just buying the transfer papers. It might be the amount of ink your printer puts out, too? Thanks! The wet method only works on non sealed wood. Hi! Check out Unexpected Elegance’s instructions on how to use this method. Thanks for the idea and the great Graphics Fairy tip, she is wonderful! my sister and I tried for hours today to get a method to work using freezer paper, waxed paper, etc. Obviously the better quality iron, the better results you will receive, but generally any household iron should work. Very awesome (and cheap) transfer technique. In word on my MacBook I can select print and then go to the print setting and choose t shirt transfer, it ended up printing it at a much higher quality (more ink) which showed up a lot more and I didn’t have to flip every image! Hello. THANKS!!!! Working with the painted and then sanded dry wood worked perfectly. It can cause the wax paper to get jammed. I may use a spray shellac, only thing I can think of. Anyway, you are so artistic, wondering if you know a technique such as this that would transfer onto glass? I see a lot of transfer directly to wood but need help to do it on a painted wood surface. On fabrics, I use a hot iron to set it. Amanda, I haven’t use it on that type of medium. about sealing the wood after doing this, lowe’s carries sealers in a spray paint and you can’t get either gloss or matte…I would imagine that those would be your best bet to keep the ink from running when you seal it…I don’t know how well they work because I haven’t used them yet, but just wanted to mention that they may be a better option that using a brush…anywho, sorry if those ??? Since so many have had issues with their printers and the wax paper, I’ll try the suggestions of a few others, shared in the comments. I cannot find it in kitchenware retailers or any supermarkets. I just tried this on a surface that I painted with Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint. Many thanks for your creative ideas. Thanks so much! I love detailed tutorials-and here is another one to add to the list of great ones! hi, i was thinking about doing this on some big letters for my sister for christmas, but the letters are painted.. i was wondering if this idea would work on painted wood, or does it work just on plain wood? I have an inkjet printer, the images print okay on wax paper, then they are either way too light on the wood, or they blur, or they smear, or only parts of the image transfer, or a combination of the above. When I look at your blog in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. Hopefully, that will help! I even tried taping it to a piece of computer paper. Just taped the wax paper to a piece of card stock and worked great. Thanks so much for sharing the tutorial. This week I used it for the first time on a miniature stool I found that already had old paint on it. Does this work with color ink as well? Placed the sticky side up on the counter, took a piece of wax paper a little longer than the label, placed the extra at the edge of the counter and leaned on it – to keep it taunt, placed it right on the sticky side of the label. Tried this tonight and putting the wax paper by itself was a bust. Any idea if the method you used would work on a candle? I’ve printed onto white (or light) tissue paper (Tracing Paper also works) and then I mod podged it. The links were all gone for me to see, too. I’m not sure if I missed it somewhere but may I ask which printer and inks you find works best for this technique? FYI …. Kathie, I haven’t done this project in a while but from what I remember I transferred it right away. And to throw yet another kink in my question, could the wax paper you’re referring to also be known as parchment paper? I have an Epson and to print on non-Epson paper (like transparancies) I had to use cut up zip ties to lift the rollers out of the way so they would not touch the paper. Placing The Transfer On Straight. Do you think it would work on paper bags? would it work the same if you used a shirt? Regarding washing your … Thank you for the wonderful tutorial. I will certainly digg it and in my opinion suggest to my friends. This link has a bunch of different tutorials: Just a FYI…my daughter and I could not get this to work – the wax paper would not go through the printer at all until we attached it to piece of printer paper…then WAAAA-LAA!!!! ~Angela. ~Angela. A paste might work? I took a sheet of clear “overhead” printer sheets (teachers use them to print something for students to see on an overhead projector). CAN I JUST SAY “THANK THE GOD LORD THAT IT WORKED!!!!!!! . Im getting frustrated bc i have a graphic i need to get placed on a painted table. I wonder if soaking it in vinegar might help. I have tried it with avery clear transfer paper, with the clear sheet still on it and my printer just spit it out…….I will try by peeling it first……pray it works. Great idea, Angela. Then I put the label in the printer and it worked like magic. Thanks! Yes, they are pricey, but not as expensive as a new printer. Too much on the shirt can cause damage to your finished product. ;) Sorry, it didn’t work out for you!! Not sure about it drying? Thanks for trying it out! Hope this helps. Hopefully that helped?!?! Jennie, I’m so glad it worked for you!!!! Otherwise if you mod podge it right away the ink is spread a bit with the mod podge. I’m interested in one of the cheese dome/plates like BJ bought. I am trying to figure out how to seal it so that the ink is not smudged. Varnish last. Carol, I haven’t tried it this way. Bummed. OK…..OH….MY….GOD!!!!! So many transfers only work with lasers. (+) Service has been A-ok. One guy was really cool and personable (older guy) and another guy was kind of just….there. Try to line up the paper then gently lay it on the surface you want to transfer it to. It can be a little tricky. Painter's Tape is the answer! Great directions, too. Also I tried another method using freezer paper. Hi! Sorry, I’m not much help! Molly, I have used this method on a candle before but it’s very tricky. Let me know if you decide to try it! It took a while to get it printed on the wax paper without it coming out of the printer smudged. I know other people have stained over the transfer and it worked fine. Do you still sell these? If the wood you are using has a finish on it, you will need to sand it pretty good before you use the transfer. I love what you have done with your kitchen. Let me know if you try it! I too have been looking for something like this. hmm..would this work for transferring onto plastic? TIP:  I found that if you wet the wood a little, it would make the transfer darker. I’d never heard of it and love trying new things. Good luck! Laser printers are pretty persnickety. Using a heat press – I use a 15×15 inch heat press. Thanks so much G, Glenda, the colored ink will work. I really enjoyed watching this project. Will definitely have to try it! Thanks for sharing!! I need some more followers on my blog too, If you follow me, I’d be very grateful. I am your newest follower and plan on linking to the Transfer Link Party this week. ~Angela. I suppose you would have to reverse print the letters so that they would transfer correctly? I have tried brushing lightly with Polycrylic over the top and that smeared my ink and I have wax, but I know rubbing wax over the top will for sure smear the ink. I actually liked both looks, the paler one looks very vintage.

can you use wax paper for heat transfer vinyl
