IMAGE TRANSFER TO FABRIC WITH ACETONE
Pillows, tablecloths, clothes, decorative details, and shelves are generally available for purchase with mass-produced patterns and patterns that are not unique. Each of us wants to have something that is unique and different from everything else on the market, so we are all always looking to do projects that can help us in this.
This time, we present you a very simple way to decorate any fabric, wood or paper with the photo of your choice. All you need is a laser-printed image, acetone, and a material to transfer the image. This is just one of many examples for the DIY project, and we hope it will inspire you and tell you to try it out.
TRANSFER A PHOTOCOPY TO FABRIC USING ACETONE
When you select the photo you want to copy, for example, to the pillow, you need to print it with a laser printer. Ink-jet printers that were popular and who all possessed in their home will not be suitable for this project because the ink they use is not stable enough. Make sure that the image is mapped upside down – especially notice if the image you want has a text. Before printing, process it in Photoshop or some other custom-made program to suit your needs.
The next step is to transfer the image to the selected material. If it’s a fabric, make sure it is completely straight and without wrinkles.
Fasten the image with a canvas tape and prepare your 100% acetone, without color and accessories. Gradually apply the liquid to your image with a brush or a cotton wool.
When you cover the whole picture, then use a glass bottle or spoon to cross over it with light pressure to transfer the image. Make sure you do not press a lot, so as not to tear the paper. If you do not completely transfer the image, you can add more fluids.
Finally, when you’re done with the process of adding fluid and rubbing the image, slowly take off the paper and look at your new masterpiece. This way you can create retro chic pieces that have been the trend for the last few years.
