The books from which Gutenberg learned to read as a young boy were not like books today; they were written by hand. A better name for them than books is "manuscripts," which means "hand-writings. It was what is called block-printing.
And an object you want to transfer to. I chose to use a wooden pizza peel. Get all the supplies you need HERE!! I found that if you wet the wood a little, it would make the transfer darker. To see my video tutorial for this wax paper transfer, check it out HERE.
Cut the wax paper to the size of printer paper. Check it out for some really great stuff! You will need to reverse the image. Most computers have the program Paint. Open the picture you want to flip, then go to Image in the top bar. That should reverse the image for you. If you put it on top of printer paper, you can use the paper as a guide on how far the wax paper needs to be in the printer.
Stand close to the printer and help guide the wax paper out. OH, and make sure there are no wrinkles!! It can cause the wax paper to get jammed.
Try to line up the paper then gently lay it on the surface you want to transfer it to. Holding the wax paper firmly down, use a credit card to gently scrape the surface.
Then carefully remove the paper. It will still have ink, so be careful not to drag it. Here are the two sides of the board, the first one is without getting the board wet and the second one is damp.
You can see that the second is much darker but the paper moves easily so it smeared a little. It all depends on the look you want. This project takes about 10 minutes and is super cheap. It works on fabric too, but the thread has to be really tight for the best results.
You can find out how to seal your transfer HERE.
