1. print happy

print your photo on lazertran paper, making sure the image prints on the chalky eggshell side. let dry for 30 minutes. cut the image to size. soak the printout facedown in a pan of water for about a minute. peel off the backing and place the filmy printout onto a ceramic vase, smoothing out any air bubbles.

2. the big reveal!

once the paper dries, the white on the photo will show. if you want it to be clear, paint one to three coats of polyurethane over the top of the image.
