WOW!!! You can #chalk on any surface you can think of! If #ink wont do the trick, the #paste will! Paste is washable and can be done on reusable chalk boards or if you make a mistake just wash it off!
Well this surface turned out well! It was a rusty old disc off our air drill and I took a grinder to it to clean the rust off and then sprayed it with a sealer and allowed it to dry before chalking it! #prep the #surface! Some surfaces you will need to prep so your transfer doesn't stick. Then of course I waxed this transfer up too! Wax and wipe off the excess with an old rag.
I am a farm girl and love living on the ranch so the farm transfers really resonate with me! Life on the farm is the best! So here I prove it! (Check out my farm diary blog)!
#DIY How to create this project?
The #transfer used was Life is better on the farm. This is a large transfer with several cut lines in it! So cut it up on all the lines! Once that is all done you will notice the barn has a framing copy (the white) and an overlay (the red boards). So you can do it one of two ways. Put the framing one down and leave it as just the white (or whatever color you choose) frame on your project. If you want the red barn white frame effect, then lay down the silk screen with the most white on it (the overlay barn boards) and paste it. I choose to paste it red. There are tiny markers on the top that you should color so you can easily place your #layer #transfer over the top. These can #wash off! Allow the base to fully dry before layering a second transfer. When layering the barn frame do not push it down super hard. Work quickly with the paste and squeegee it off as fast as possible so it doesn't bleed or affect the first layer of paste.
Once you are done the layering and paste continue to design it however catches your fancy with the other transfers that are part of the farm transfer if you want too! Don't forget that you need to wash your transfers and allow them to dry face down! Then put them back on the transfer backer sheet to reuse at a later time!
