French Le Chocolat Basket

A unique little basket coated with Annie Sloane Old White.

I used a graphic from the Graphics Fairy called brown Chocolat. I printed it in reverse then coated the words with Modge Podge.

I flipped the image over and smoothed out all the bubbles.

I let the paper dry then rubbed off the paper. Next I distressed with sandpaper and waxed with Annie Sloane clear wax.

An adorable rustic basket for your Chocolat!

  1. That looks great, Susan! I have to admit, I have had no luck with this technique. I can only think I'm not letting it dry long enough. Next week I tackle graphite paper and making a sign. We'll see how that one goes.

  2. Nice job, it looks great Susan!

  3. Susan,
    That is so LOVELY!!!
    Would you consider a step by step tutorial on how you did the Mod Podge of the image?
    What kind of paper did you use for your copy?
    How long to dry, how to rub, etc, etc???

  4. So the modge sucks the print out onto the wood? Hmmmm, will that work with both an ink jet and laser printer? It turned out great, and as someone who is trying all the techniques to find what works best for me to transfer, I have yet to modge podge.
