It’s holiday time and we are setting up a booth at the local craft fair. Big deal right? Kinda is a big deal, I haven’t done a craft fair in over 20 years. I have only done Home Shows and Antique Shows so I am a bit rusty. Since I make something every day for a class sample or to try something new, why not compile a larger amount and sell them at the craft fair? Enter IOD Transfers at the Craft Fair!
Sap Bucket Transfers
These are nice big buckets perfect for a small waste basket. Because I purchased a large lot of them, 37 to be exact, I am going to use 10 of them for the craft fair. Here is how I assembly lined them so I could get them all done in 2 days! I haven’t specified paint type because I was using up what I had but any flat paint suitable for metal will work.
- First dust them all off and then clean with a solvent. These are old buckets and I have no idea what might be on them.
- Let them thoroughly dry
- paint and let the paint thoroughly dry [at least overnight]
- If you need a second coat apply it but I like a lighter paint coverage for this project
- Now to add the IOD transfer
*cut the pieces and arrange how you want them before you begin to burnish them
- When you are happy with your design burnish the transfers. Make sure all the edges are down and rub with a soft cloth.
- Seal with your favorite topcoat depending on the paint you used.
And We’re Off
I love the way these black transfers came out on the winter white buckets. Perfect with holiday berry picks. We’ll see how well IOD Transfers at the Craft Fair do.
