Transfer a Photo onto a Slab of Wood: cover wood with gel medium; place paper picture-side down; firmly smooth out all bubbles; let dry overnight; gently rub wetted paper off; clean all paper residue off; cover with mod podge; let dry;
Place a sheet of wax paper (or transfer paper) over pattern and trace with pencil. Flip wax paper (pencil side down) on the canvas. Run a pencil over the blank side of the wax paper. Pattern should transfer to canvas, then trace it with puffy paint/glue.
Draw on wax paper with permanent markers, wrap around candle and heat until image is transferred. It would be great to do this for Mother's Day, or Teacher Appreciation Day - have kids draw on wax paper and give her a personalized candle.
