Blender Method Transfer Tables

Look at these cute little accent tables…they were screaming “The Graphics Fairy.”  Karen has so many transfers to choose from it was hard to settle on two.  
Here’s a before photo…great little tables, they just needed new life (painted) into them.
 First step was to paint them white.  

Next, I printed out a mirror image of the graphics on my laser printer and taped them in place on each table. (If you have trouble finding your mirror image ~ look an see if you have the option of printing horizontal.  That’s how mine works!)

 Here’s where the fun begins.  Pressing hard and vigorously rubbing the design onto the table with my  Chartpak Blender Clear Marker.  I purchase my markers from Arizona Art Supply.  The regular craft stores near me do not carry them.  I suggest you call around to art supply stores first so not to waste time and money hunting them down like I did originally. Haha  (live & learn)
 I always check as I go to make sure I’m pressing hard enough.  It would be impossible to place it back in the same place once it was completely removed.
And…here they are!

Here’s the link to the Paris Transfer.
Here’s a link to the  French Wreath Bee Transfer.
Of-coarse I had to distress them a little and add some dark wax around the edges and spindles to complete the look.
They are ready for our Vintage Market next month (if they last that long)!

  1. I just did this for the first time last week!!! ( transferring images – and I used the clear marker as well – but it took me like forevah lol )

  2. Love these! What an incredible transformation!

  3. Nice job! You need to give a warning that image transfers are addictive! ~ Maureen

  4. Beautiful!! I’ve just discovered the Graphic Fairy and have saved a slew of images for future use. Can’t wait to do something this lovely!
    Debbie :)

    • That’s awesome! Karen is the best!!! Make sure you save the links back to the graphics as well so you don’t have to go hunting later. I’ve done it! lol It’s another one of those “live & learn” moments! :)

  5. Very cute. I did a table very similar to yours, but used a heat transfer tool and citrasolve. It sounds like the citrasolve is similar to the marker you used. If your hooked on transferring….as I am too….then you might like these other methods as well. Check out my blog for instructions if you’re interested at http://twinpikks.blogspot.com/

    Take Care,

  8. Thanks so much for your visit and comments, AND for becoming a follower. I am now following you! I love the tables. I haven’t tried this exactly. I know how, it’s just that my printer is kinda wonky. Sometimes it prints, and sometimes it doesn’t. I really need a new one.

    Thanks again!

  9. Wow, I love your tables! Right up my alley. Thank you so much for visiting and following my blog. Following right along with you! Your blog is awesome. :)

  17. Judy… I see you’ve been very busy! Those sweet, little tables are just so adorable. Amazing what a little love and elbow grease can do to create a fabulous make-over. I just recently tried water-slide transfers but will now head out and try the pen. Thanks for the tip!

  18. Hi. I’ve never used anything called blender clear marker. Hmm this is a great idea for my dininng table….I got to try.:)

  19. Thanks so much for the tip! I have been wanting to try this out. Can’t wait to get started! Suzanne

  20. I’ve never tried the Blender Pen, but I have tried the Citrasolv method. Is the Blender pen easier?

    • Hi Jean…I’ve actually never tried the Citrasolv but I’ve seen friends that have tried it and they had a lot of trouble with smearing. I’ve only had the Blender pen smear once (very little) and I just touched it up with paint. Hope this helps. I would definitely give it a try! :)

  21. you do amazing work…your pieces are eye candy perfection!

  22. I have to try this ! If I can just find one of those markers , Can you put a finish on top of it ?
    Thanks for following me ! I have subscribed to this blog .

    • Thanks so much Sharon…so glad you are following along! Yes, you can put a finish over the top of this application. Just make sure it is completely dry first or it will smear. I teach this method in my classes…and it really doesn’t take that long for it to dry. These markers can also be ordered from Amazon. Hope you had a great weekend! Blessings ~ Judy

  23. Hello Judy,
    I just printed an image…got a marker…now I have one question…what kind of paper did you use? I just used normal computer paper and nothing happen:(

    Blessings,
    Linda

    • Hi Linda…you must use a laser printer. It will not work with inkjet. If you don’t own an laser printer, not to worry. If you have a friend who owns one or a Kinko’s near by that would work too. I’ve waited up to an hour after printing before actually using the print out and it worked just fine. Hope this helps! Congrats on finding the marker…you’re almost there!!! :) Please keep me posted.
