Adding an Image to an Enamelware Pail5:30:00 AM
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!
