grease proof paper image transfer tutorial

Saturday, 14 January 2012

 for this you will need
spray glue,
a4 piece of paper
printer, mine is an inkjet printer
something to rub over back of image
 first lay out the grease proof paper (make sure the shiny side is on the opposite side, and get the spray glue and spray it to the back of the A4 piece of paper and stick together.
then you need to cut around the grease proof paper so that it is the same size as the piece of the paper. then its ready to print on.
 i chose to put the image on to this with wooden tray.
 i found this image on graphics fairy.
put the paper intothe printer so that it prints on to the grease proof paper. make sure to mirror the image on the computer before printing
 then place the paper ink down on the tray and rub the back to make sure the image is transfered. i used a bank card.
 if the image has parts missing then, you can go other it with pen or paint.


  1. That's cool! :) I wonder would Ironing the back of the greaseproof work too?

    1. Hello, where can you purchase greaseproof paper. Does it have another name? I really want to do this with another idea.

    2. yep I think baking paper is the same thing

  2. This is so pretty! I love that image too! This is one of my favorite techniques as well.

  4. I'm a new follower. What is an A4 paper? and what is grease proof paper? it freezer paper? I'm wanting to to a transfer like this with my inkjet. Thanks for the info.

  5. Visiting from "just a housewife" and I love this idea. One quick question? What is grease proof paper and where can I get it? I am pinning this!

  6. This turned out great! The Graphics Fairy always has just wonderful images. I will have to give this technique a try. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Hmmm. Now I have another option for graphics transfer. I had not seen this way before. Pretty soon I won't have any excuse not to make something with one of the processes!


  8. Hi Aimee! Great tutorial and gorgeous tray!
    Greetings from Spain

  9. Another great transfer idea! Where do you get grease free paper?

  10. LUV this! It turned out so deliciously vintage looking! I'm assuming that "greaseproof paper" is freezer paper? And what is A4 paper? I definitely want to try this! Thank you so much for sharing!

  11. In UK you can buy greaseproof paper from any super market such as Morrisons, Asdas etc.
    A4 is the size of paper, ya can buy this size in pads or in packs used for printers, typewriters etc.
    Students use A4 lined pads!... if that helps!

  12. This can also be done by printing the reversed image on transparency sheets used normally for overhead projectors, and the sheet can be wiped clean ready for the next project!
