More Transfer

This iron base bench is one of my recent finds. It was covered with a very dirty green material. It was part of a pile of furniture I purchased at an estate sale. If I recall, I paid around $5 for it.  I didn't paint the base.  I just gave the cushion a makeover.

I used my Splendid Blender transfer method to add cherubs to another piece of coffee/dye linen material. I didn't stir the dye too much, because I didn't want a uniform color. I wanted it to look faded in spots.

Just like the chair from my previous post.

For those of you who have asked, "Can you use the Splendid Blender to transfer onto other surfaces?". Yes, you can. I used it on this 25 cent bucket.

There are a few tricks to make it work properly. I'll be back with a tutorial. In the mean time, can you guess what I used the technique on here?

It's part of a really cool redesign.

  20. Hi Dear Rosemary, I love the method you used in the transfer. The washed out, muted look is great. Looking forward to your tutorial. I am coming over from Coastal Charm, drop by for a visit. Kathy

  21. These are truly amazing Rosemary and I am dying trying to get my hands on one of those pens!! I think I may just have to chance it and order the from that link I emailed you.

  22. Hi, I am coming over from THT at Pamela's. I love what I am seeing here. I am a new follower.

  23. I love these, can't wait for the tute on it. Thanks for sharing at Beyond the Picket Fence.

  24. I love your blog and your ideas. I realize I'm a bit late to your site but I am here now! Love, love, love. The closest thing I've seen to what I aspire to do. Question: approximately how long does a splender blender last i.e more than 3 projects the size of the waste basket? I live in a rural area and wonder if I need to pick up 2 or 3 when I get my first. I'm pretty sure you can get it at Hob Lob?
