There was such a positive response to my previous posting on this transfer technique that I wanted to show my newest art project using the same technique on a different medium. Here I used a small 6x6 inch canvas that I painted brown first and then a coat of white. I used a great Honey Bee graphic found @ The Graphics Fairy, reversed it on the computer and printed off with an inkjet printer. I applied a coat of Mod Podge to the canvas and applied the image ink side down. Let dry over night (not great for the instant gratification minded). Soak thoroughly in water and when the paper softens, rub off gently, I use my finger and a circular motion. In this case I then tinted in the yellow areas with acrylic paint to get the striping for the Bee's body. Brush on another coat of Mod Podge to seal and then an antiquing coat of my new favorite color "Asphaltium". I did a light wash then I dabbed it around the perimeter with a sea sponge for that mottled look.
