Customized Metal Canister

This metal canister was just too 
cute to pass up at a garage sale last weekend...

I created a label from the Graphics Fairy
outstanding collection of graphics.

I printed out the image with a laser printer (not in reverse)
and coated the image with Omni Gel Transfer Medium.


I gave it 3 coats and let each coat dry in between.

When the paper was dry I cut around the image and wet the back of the paper. I rubbed off the paper until I had a plasic-y image in my hand... Then I placed it onto the canister and gave the image
another top coat of Omni Gel.

That's it... The image looks great!

This canister is perfect for a laundry soap container but you can choose any image you like and use it on anything! The directions on Omni Gel say you can use it on a variety of surfaces.

  7. OK, you are right, that is cute. So I'm pinning it of course to remind me to try that process. Does the paper all come off and just leave the image?
