Goodwill Revamp Reveal


Last time, I showed you two items that I got from Goodwill store. I just finished this little project today.

It wasn't real biggie. What I did was took off the top of this candle holder to use as a pedestal for my candle dish that I also painted ivory.





Of course, it would be boring if I did not put an image on a blank dish. So I rushed to my favorite source of images The Graphic's Fairy.


So I didn't have decal sheets so I tried to use a similar image transfer experiment I did here. Since this is ceramic, it's gonna be a little more different than like transfering an image to a fabric. This time, I cut-out the image as close as possible to the image lines. Then, I glued the image, ink face down the surface of the ceramic. Let it dry for a night or two to be very sure. Then after, I rubbed the excess wax paper using your finger dabbed in water. It is very important to rub it very gently so the entire ink wont come off. This works for projects that you wish to have a little faded or rustic look. Then finish it sealing the image with modge podge.


I hope you enjoyed the post.

up next...




Have a wonderful day!!!
