Oh well, I was going to sand it back anyway. Then I copied an image from the Graphics Fairy onto my TAP paper and attempted to do a transfer onto my wood. I should have stopped after the first transfer, but I was convinced I would get the technique down pat. After all, I'm convinced I read somewhere it could be done. The image bubbled and crystallized and smeared and pretty much frustrated the heck out of me, but I persevered until I got the whole thing done.
Now I'm asking myself why I just didn't switch to a wax paper transfer method, but I'm stubborn like that.
It's really not that difficult to paint these little cabinets. The first coat takes a little patience.
You can see how bad my transfer bubbled and yellowed. Oh yes, it yellowed.
The long and short of it is I won't lose money on this piece but I sure won't make anything on it either. I also believe in sharing my successes and my failures and this was a major flop. Thanks for looking anyway, and stick to designing beautiful towels and fabric items with your TAP and leave the furniture transfers to other tried and true methods.
