First, I updated a few steps on the Mod Podge Photo Canvas tutorial to sound less confusing. Please send any more questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Question 1: What kind of photo paper did you use?
I had my photo's printed through Costco Photo. You can actually upload them online and pick them up the same day! Fast and convenient. Any professional photo printing will do. You might even try some online sites like Snapfish or Shutterfly.
ATTENTION: Do not try to use photo's printed from home. The ink doesn't set enough and the colors will run. Also, make sure the print size is equal to or larger than your canvas size if you want the canvas fully covered with a darling photo. For the 12 x 12 canvas I printed in size 12 x 18 inches.
Question 2: What is the wax paper for?
In Sassy's original tutorial, she used was paper for placing the image on to dry face down overnight . This prevents bubbling and the canvas won't stick to the wax paper.
In my tutorial I simply used it for applying Mod Podge to the back of the photo. I just tore off a sheet of regular wax paper and used it like a painters cloth under my project. I didn't want the photo to get damaged, or to get Mod Podge all over. You can use a paper towel or just paper if you prefer.
Keep the questions coming!
Also, keep checking back. Sassy and I have some exciting news for a GINORMOUS giveaway project we will be hosting early December.
