How to Make Freezer Paper Sheets for your Inkjet Printer
Are you ready rock painters??? Let's get started...here we go!
Make sure to refer to the articles and videos linked above the DIRECTIONS BEFORE moving forward.
"Downloading Image into Word Processing Document"
In this video I will demonstrate the print commands for printing on a piece of freezer paper that you will have manually placed into the rear tray of your inkjet printer.
I filmed this in real time with my phone, so I apologize for the shakiness of the video. In any case I hope that you will find it helpful and informative.
Using ordinary kitchen freezer paper is a great way to get an awesome transfer of ink onto another surface, in this video I am using freezer paper to transfer an image onto a rock.
FYI...If you don't have freezer paper, I would just like to say that the image transfer method outlined in this rock painting tutorial also works using regular computer paper. The freezer paper works better, but both will work well.
You can buy pre-made freezer paper for your computer here https://amzn.to/39zebEZ (also linked below in ‘RELATED VIDEOS' section) if you don't want to go through the process of making your own.
However, if you would like to learn how to make freezer paper sheets for your computer, watch this video https://youtu.be/0EYCIbkP9lo which will also be linked below (in the ‘RELATED VIDEOS' section). I believe that this is a more cost-effective way to go, but it's up to you.
"Printing Extra Flowers onto Freezer Paper"
Adding flowers to the edges, in my opinion, gives the painting more depth. It makes it look as though whoever is looking at the painting is seeing it from a distance, in other words peeking through the flowers in the meadow to see the bunnies and butterflies.
"Adding Additional Flowers with Mod Podge"
In this video I will demonstrate how to peel the paper back to reveal the images. Computer paper has about 7 layers, freezer paper too. So while this process takes a while to get a great transfer of ink to the rock, it also takes great patience.
