How to print on wax paper for transfer to wood

Wax Printed Driftwood Beach Sign [tutorial]



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).
