Pinterest – Fail

in: General

I don’t have pictures of this – because I tried to fix it but it just got worse and worse.

I have seen these on Pinterest and I have probably 15+ of them saved, so I tried it – BIGGEST FAIL EVER!!!!

Here are some things that don’t ever seem to be mentioned:

  • The waxed paper will get creased as it goes thru your printer
  • The ink does not stick to the waxed paper in any way, shape of form – it literally sits on the surface
    I guess that’s the lure of this project
  • The slightest touch of anything, including a breeze and the ink will come off and grabs ahold of anything it can find – I mean anything!
  • The wood that you are going to stick this on MUST be smooth – I tried putting this on a piece of barn wood that I’ve been saving (ok, the icky piece that I had – thank goodness!) 
  • Rubbing with a credit card type thing will not work if your wood has any surface texture at all
    When this had gone terrible wrong, I just started experimenting – what did work, with the barn wood was taking a pencil and scribing on the back. Becuz the pencil pushes the was paper into crevices, more of the ink goes onto the wood.
  • If your wood is not white or very, very, very lite – you will more than likely barely see a shadow
  • If you are planning to use this as an image to paint over – if you’re not on white or really lite, it is very difficult to see

I unfortunately tried this for a valentines gift – so needless to say I had nothing to give him for Valentines day!!!!

    • I'm totally into this for a party idea. I love playing games at parties. This reminds of a party I had once where I created a life-sized boardgame in the backyard and had a "Mario Party" Party that was just like the video game. I wish I had pictures. ):
