Photo Tranfers On Wood ~ A labor of Love

Transferring an original photograph onto wood is an artful process that requires patience and an eye for detail. It take about 3 days for a finished product if there are no mishaps along the way.

Here's how it's done:

  1. Prep the wood: Choose a smooth, clean wooden surface.
  2. Select the image: Opt for a laser-printed photograph.
  3. Apply gel medium: Coat the wood with gel medium.
  4. Transfer the photo: Place the photo face down onto the gel medium.
  5. Let it dry: Allow the gel medium to dry completely. I wait 24 hours.
  6. Remove paper: Dampen and gently rub off the paper fibers. This process is done slowly and very carefully to retain as much of the image as possible.
  7. Seal with epoxy resin: Apply epoxy resin for protection and a glossy finish.
  8. Let it cure: Allow the resin to dry according to instructions. This curing process takes 24 hours.
  9. Display: The art piece is ready to hang or set on a surface.


Each piece is handmade and crafted with care, resulting in a one-of-a-kind creation that adds character to any space.
