How to translate photos onto glass
Earlier We already wrote about how to translate a photo on a tree (can esteem here). Today, We suggest that you transfer the image to the glass using the same technique. In the example, glass bottles were used, polished with sea and waves (so that they do not have sharp edges). So, if you have such glass bottles near your hand (although you can use any other glass surface), proceed.
You will need:
- glass pebbles, polished with water (or any other glass surface);
- adhesive for decoupage (in the example Mod Podge is used);
- photos in electronic form;
- laser printer.
1. Select the necessary images and print them on the laser printer in the correct size. Please note: the photo must be mirrored, otherwise the image will turn upside down.
2. Apply glue for decoupage on the front side of the printed image.
3. Take a piece of glass (or the necessary glass surface) and apply a processed photo to the glass face. Press and flatten the image so that there are no bubbles. Trim excess edges (if any), and then allow to dry for about an hour.
4. When the adhesive for decoupage dried, take a wet towel and cover the image. Leave it all for 10 minutes. This step is necessary to slightly moisten the surface being treated and to facilitate the process of removing the top layer of paper.
5. Now, when the paper is a little soaked in moisture, gently start with a damp towel to peel off the top layer.
6. When you remove all the paper, take the brush again and apply one more layer of decoupling adhesive to the glass surface with the translated image. This step will help to fix the image on the glass surface.
7. Allow the glue to dry. All is ready! You transferred the images to the glass.
