* critter plaques

Posted on November 19th, 2010 by maitreya. Filed under Art.


Mark got these funny animal portrait prints by Berkley Illustration at a craft fair last year.  We’ve been trying to figure out the best way to put them up.  We were looking for oval frames at Michaels this weekend and came up with the idea of decoupaging them on wood plaques (99 cents!).

Mark did everything.  He stained the wood, Mod-Podged the picture on, then creased around the edge to make a cutting guide.  He used an X-acto knife to cut close around the edges, then shellacked the whole thing with another layer of Mod Podge.  They’re pretty hilarious.

    I’m thinking of copying this idea for my future framed family pictures wall…but what were the critter pics printed on? Glossy paper?
