The materials needed for this project are basic:
Black Acrylic Paint
1. Paint the edges of your canvas.
2. Apply an even layer of mod podge
3. Lay photo face up on canvas. Smooth and press firmly removing any bubbles.
4. Once dry, trim edges so that the photo does not hang over the edge of the canvas. I donâ€™t know why this happened since I have the same size canvas and photo, but it does.
5. Add a layer of Mod podge to the top of the photo to seal.
That simple. I do not have my new photos hung up yet, but here is what my other photos look like on the wall.
1. Do you lay the photo face up or down?
2. Where did you get your pictures printed? Can I print them at home? What type of paper?
I got my pictures printed at Walgreens on photo paper. You can print at home but I suggest only doing this if you have a laser printer. I think the ink jet will be a mess once you use the mod podge.
3. Where did you get your canvas?
I purchased my canvas at Michaels. If you need an online solution go to consumercrafts.com
4. What size were your photos?
8Ã—10. You can do any size you want.
5. Why did you trim the edges? Couldnâ€™t you do this prior to gluing the photo down?
For some reason my photos were slightly larger than my canvas. Yes, you can size your photos prior to mod podging them onto the canvas.
6. What type of mod podge did you use?
I used the glossy format. You can use the gloss or matte. Either one would work.
