Christmas DIY – Laser Photo Copy Transfered to Wood – This is one of the easiest and most rewarding projects ever. It certainly isn’t a project exclusive to Christmas either. You’ll only need a few basics… Here’s the list: 1. Your Laser Photo Copy (Be sure to print it reversed, as it will be transfered reversed thus returning it back to normal). 2. Sponge Brush or Paint Brush 3. Liquitex Matte Gel Medium 4. A Piece of Wood Cut to the size you desire 4. A Cup or Bowl of water 5. A Washcloth or Washrag – Now, check out the demonstration photos along with the instructional captions. Have fun making these for your own home and as gifts for others! They are fabulous!
