Hi Deb, If you click on the “Transfer Methods” button at the top of my blog, there are all sorts of methods there for you to choose from. I hope that helps!
This table transfers are absolutely beautiful! They add such a vintage feeling to the tables. I am wondering about transfers you can use on glass. I have a pane of glass I would like to make look like stained glass without all the work (or expense).
Wow! Karen, thank you so………..much for consolidating these great projects into one post! Lots of inspiration indeed and as usual, I get introduced to more and more talented artists/crafters/hobbyists out there because of you and your gorgeous images!
I have just branched-out to wooden boxes, which is the closest I’ve come to furniture. I cant wait to visit the next 11 projects. Thank you!
