I first saw this technique on craftgawker.
I printed photos on plain computer paper, drenched the canvas area with clear gesso, put the printout face down, waited a day or two then drenched it with water and ripped it off!

Voila! You get an awesome weathered looking photo!

I learned that it works best on darker photos…some print out on paper darker so leave it! It will come out better!!
I will post more later as most are for presents!!

Also be really careful when it comes to faces….dont wanna butcher those ones!!
