Creating maple leaf art on wood panel

Flip the image of the maple leaf line drawing horizontally (in image editing software) to create a mirror image.   Output the image using a laser printer.   Tape the printout to wood panel.   Apply acetone (nail polish remover) to the back of the printout, and use a spoon to rub and transfer dissolved toner onto the wood panel.  Make sure there is good air ventilation.

Apply several layers of acrylic medium to seal the wood, and create a nice smooth painting surface.  Paint with Acryl Gouache.
