I am thinking to make a drawing or glue a picture or something on the box.
I have heard that some people glue a picture on the wood, but without the paper...they sort of "print" it on wood.
Does anybody make drawings or print pictures on the box??
All suggestions are welcome.
Martin, To add to MadGomer's reply - I've done B/W ink transfer using label sheets. Peel the labels off. Print on the sheet using highest resolution. As MadGomer said - reverse the image before printing. Make sure the surface is sanded and smooth. Carefully turn over place the printed image where you want it. Don't let it shift once on the surface. Use a credit card or similar to force the ink onto the surface, working from center out to edges. let dry. Spray a topcoat on. brushing WILL smear it (experienced. My avatar is one I did - its a feline companion image on a 4 stringer I built back in March. Good Luck
I found this and I will try it on the box. It is called a transfermarker. I will post the picture when i am done.Thank you for your time and tips!!
I won't repost them all here, but here's a link to my third build which has a hand drawn top. So far I've done some type of (hand drawn) art on every build I've completed except for No. 1. In the case of No. 2 and No. 3, I spray-painted the box with a base coat first (standard glossy spray paint). After this, I roughed out a sketch with pencil, then traced in paint pen, erasing the pencil sketch afterwards. Finally after I colored it all with the same paint pens and used a glossy spray to protect the artwork.
