Other Supplies

Flat and clear globe ornament, ½” (One-half inch) flat brush, Laser photocopy, Chunky glitter, Silver cording, Scissors, Paper plate, Water basin, Paper towels

Instructions

  1. Trim image in a circle to fit the globe back.
  2. Lay your trimmed image side facing UP on your craft mat.
  3. Squeeze a generous amount of Photo Transfer Medium onto a foam plate. In smooth strokes, apply the medium over the image. Apply a thick coat so that you cannot see the image. Cover the entire image. Carefully bend the craft mat back to release the image corner. Pick up the image and move to a clean part of the mat. Let dry 24 hours.
  4. After your photo has cured for 24 hours, flip the image over so the paper side is facing UP.
  5. To reveal the image, press a semi-damp sponge over the image in sections and let the dampness set for two (2) minutes. Then rub over the wet paper in a circular motion removing the paper. Repeat until the image is completely revealed. Let dry.
  6. Repeat rubbings may be necessary in parts where the paper is still adhered. Let dry.
  7. Place on the backside of the globe ornament and smooth in place.
  8. Partially fill the ornament with chunky glitter.
  9. Add Silver cording for hanging.
  10. Add Collage Clay over image around to front of the ornament to create a snow look. Let dry.
  11. Paint Extreme Glitter over the dried Collage Clay.
