Garden Urns - Wood Plaques


The Graphics Fairy has these beautiful pictures of garden urns.

I transferred the garden urns using my 
 * woodworker's transfer tool on wood. 
I aged the wood with the vinegar and steel wool solution. 

~ How to Age the Wood ~ 
Apple Cider Vinegar 
Steel Wool
Container for Solution
Paint Brush 
Pour the apple cider vinegar into a container. Add the steel wool and let it sit for 24 hours.
 I used a chip paint brush to apply the mixture to the wood.  
*Save your leftover mixture. I poured the rest into a glass jar. I discarded the steel wool.

I painted the back and sides of the wood plaques with black paint. 
Then I sealed the wood with clear Butcher's Bowling Alley Wax and buffed.

* This transfer only works with a laser printer image. The woodworker's transfer tool melts the toner off the paper and onto the wood.


I love how they turned out!


I hope I've inspired you to use your woodworker's transfer tool.  

You can find it on my sidebar. 

Happy Crafting!
