Anyway. When we last saw Mr. Parker, he was glued to a canvas with Mod Podge. I let the canvas sit for 24 hours (fib – 23. I couldn’t wait that extra hour, the suspense was killing me.)
The next step is the weirdest. Get a sponge, or whatever, get it wet, and dampen the heck out of the image.
…the more the color shows through.
Use the sponge and gently start scrubbing away the paper. Yes, really.
If you hold the canvas to the light, you can see the difference in texture between the painted part and the image. I coated the image with another layer of Mod Podge to even it out. Word to the wise – if you haven’t gotten rid of every little piece of paper, the Mod Podge will emphasize it. So before you do this, make sure all the paper is gone.
This was a nerve-wracking project, but a very fun one.
Go forth and copy.
