    how do you burnish graphics. I dont know what this means.

    • Hi Sandy,
      Burnish simply means to rub really hard so that the image will transfer from the paper to the surface you are working on. I usually use a spoon to do this – you want to press quite hard, but not hard enough to rip the paper.

  3. Hi!
    I came across your blog when searching for tutorials for graphic transfers on painted wood (annie sloan) using citra solve. I have tried several attempts but find the ink runs easily. I try to be careful to not put too much cs on but there seems to be a very fine line. Have you tried to transfer onto wood?
    Thanks for any tips you can give me. (I used the tutorial from graphics fairy.)

    • Carol,
      I haven’t done any transfers on wood in a while. I have done transfers onto wood that’s already been painted, but not a lot on a bare wood surface. In the past I’ve tried burning on the image using a little tool I bought at Michaels. It can be very finicky. Kristy at 4Theloveofwood does a lot of transfers – – checking out her blog might also give you some help.

    I am starting to make my own soy candles and saw your painted mason jar candles. Very cute! I was just wondering what kind of paint you used and if it’s ok to burn the candle. FYI, I am finding candle making to be quite a science. So many variables go into it – pouring temp, wick size, scent throw. I’m in the midst of trying to get the best hot throw while having a nice, smooth candle. Test. Test. Test seems to be the key. Have you found soy candles to be challenging? Thank you for your input.

  5. I absolutely LOVE your mason jar soap dispensers! I am just wondering what price you sold them for at the market you were in? I plan on making some for a holiday boutique, but I am trying to figure out a good price for them. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so very much for all of your inspirations! ~Mollie

Hope to do another VIntage market with you soon , Maybe an Xmas / Fall market with the Olde Farmhouse Vintage Market . Thanks again Kelley @ The Upholsters Wife

  7. When using freezer paper to transfer using the ink jet printer (mine is old) do you have to attach the thin piece of freezer paper onto let’s say just standard printer paper or cardstock. I’m afraid I’ll get my freezer paper jammed in my printer. Also, I assume you place shiny side down. I have been quite successful using the freezer paper transfer method onto material but I really want to transfer onto wood. You do great stuff. I always enjoy looking. Thanks, Carolyn

    • Carolyn,
      yes… you need to attach your freezer paper onto a standard size printer paper. I use a spray adhesive to do this. Then it will easily run through your printer. Shiny side down. You can also use a wood burning tool to transfer images onto wood. I have a Versa Tool with a wood burning attachment… I haven’t tried this method yet, but am going to soon!!

  8. I tried to follow you back via linky followers, but didn’t see your widget.
