tutorial: Decalcomanie!!!

Brrr ma che freddo fa qua a Milano..il cielo e scuro e stammatina sembrava che qualche pallina di neve scendesse..per questo tempo mi son chiusa in casa con i miei amori in Soffitta..e con la mia passione pennelli è....ma sarà presto qui un post!!

Girando come sempre ho trovato questo tutorial dall'oltre Oceano...si tratta di un metodo trasferibile di etichette da abbellire le nostre bottigliette vintage ò qualsiasi altro progetto vada bene..
Unica nota è che non ho ben capito dove trovare questa carta..credo sia una decalcomania trasparente..
Voi Ragazze della Soffitta avete già provato questo metodo di trasferimento?? 
Se si, sapete dove trovare questa carta??? Io sto facendo ricerche...

Vi lascio questo bel tutorial e buona freddolosa domenica!

I found this awesome clear small apothecary-looking jar at a garage sale over the weekend and it got me to thinking about how to add a design to it.  I had read somewhere on a blog that you could print on contact paper, so I though I’d give it a go.
I picked this graphic from Graphics Fairy.  I’m diggin’ the French thing right now.  I found some clear contact paper at a thrift store for $1.00 and cut an 8 x 10 piece for printing.  I then instructed my printer to print 4 per page.  It came out like this:

As you can see, not all of the images came out spectacular.  Meh…that’s okay.  I only needed one.  I just made the others for any future potential projects.  Kids, if you’re going to try this at home….BE CAREFUL NOT TO TOUCH THE IMAGE!!    Can’t stress that enough.  It will smear if you touch it.  To prevent this, I sprayed it with polyurethane.  I put it on this clip board and taped the bottom down so that it wouldn’t curl up when I sprayed it with the poly.  Don’t use brush on poly because your image with smear.  Again, don’t touch it!  Give it a good coating of spray poly and wait…and wait…and wait.  Go walk the dog, balance your checkbook, have a margarita.  I left it out in the sun for about an hour.  I wanted to make sure it was good and dry and TOUCHABLE!    Now it’s ready for placement on the jar.
 I separated the paper from the label about 1″ at the top and lined it up on the jar.  I worked my way down, slowly removing the contact paper.  Once I was satisfied with how the label adhered to the jar, I placed the paper I had just removed back onto the label and began smoothing it out under the paper.  I wasn’t taking any chances of this label smearing!  This picture below is after I smoothed it out on the jar.  Normally, the paper would be under the label.  In other words, the paper would be between the jar and the label when removing it for the first time.
 And the finished product!  Wouldn’t it look great with cotton balls in it?  Or maybe even line it with a bright scrapbook paper so that the design pops out?
