Hold it down and use a soft sponge or rag to rub the wax paper like you would make a print, and you will be delighted to see how beautifully the image got transferred onto the wood!
You can even repeat this step and keep layering images until you are happy with the result.See how easy it is to transfer image to wood? I made four pieces in no time!
After the image transfer dries for at least a couple of hours, the final step is to protect the image with a nice furniture wax.
This step is optional, the added bonus is that the colors of the wood and images become richer and deeper once you apply the wax.
A reader asked about making these as drink coasters and how to seal them. The wax finish is water resistant. You can also use a clear acrylic spray / sealer like these instead of the wax.
Let sit for 24 hours, and you are ready to use them or give them as gifts!
Add saw-tooth hangers like these for hanging.
Now you have some unique wall art : botanical prints combined with the natural beauty of wood!
