Adding an Image to an Enamelware Pail

There was nothing not to like about this 99 cent pail.

It looked like this when I found it and while it is a reproduction, the color was perfect and the enamelware look just made me happy!

I'm using a product called Omni Gel (affiliate link) again today because it works so well for an image transfer like this one. 

I printed a coffee image from the Graphics Fairy then coated it with the Omni Gel. I gave it 3 coats letting it dry between each coat. The image was printed on a laser printer and for this project there is no need to flip the image.

The next morning when the Omni Gel was completely dry and rubbery, I cut out the image close to the lettering.

Next I wet the back of the paper and rubbed until all the paper was rubbed off. The image will be opaque. While this transfer works best on a white background like on the canister I did a while back, it still works on any color.

When all the paper was off I placed the image onto the pail.

I gave the image one more coat of Omni Gel while it was on the pail and let it dry.

I love this stuff, it makes a 99 cent pail look so cute!
