Wax Printed Driftwood Beach Sign [tutorial]
- piece of flat driftwood
- wax paper
- Americana Decor Chalky Finish Paint
- small paintbrush
- inkjet printer
Select an image you’d like to print onto your driftwood, I chose a basic red crab. Cut a piece of wax paper into an 8.5″ x 11″ sheet. Feed your wax paper into your inkjet printer and print the image. Since the wax paper is so thin, this step took me a couple tries…I found that it’s best to hand feed the paper into the printer.
Place the “wet” side of the wax paper face down onto your driftwood…
Use a flat object press and rub the ink off onto the wood…
Now you’re able to fill in the object with paint, if you can color in a coloring book you can complete this painting! I used chalky finish paint for this step because it has more depth & is super simple to distress (perfect for the vintage art look).
