While we’re on the subject of interesting photography-related wood products, take a look at Woodsnap. It’s a company that prints photographs on sheets of high-grade wood, a canvas material that’s sure to attract a lot of attention.
Earlier this month we shared a hugely popular post on transferring a photo onto a block of wood. Well, the same technique can also be used to create a canvas print. All you need, besides the stretched canvas, is some gel medium and a photo printed with toner (e.g. made with a laser printer or photocopier). The gel medium is used to “steal” the toner from the paper, and once the paper is rubbed away, the print remains. Check out the full tutorial over on A Beautiful Mess.
