Vintage Volkswagen Bus Transferred to Reclaimed Wood
This wall hanging comes ready to hang and includes beautiful close up photograph of the back end of a vintage Yellow Volkswagen Bus in Chilliwack, BC. There is a restaurant that I go to often in Chilliwack called Cookie’s Grill. Besides the restaurant is a business and in the parking lot was this VW Bus. The texture from the age of the bus was fantastic. I always wanted to get a Volkswagen Bus, grab my camera and travel through North America. One day!!
How It’s Made
Each wall hanging is handmade in my studio from a carefully selected pieces of reclaimed wood. Each piece of wood is unique and has its own personality. The art you receive will have the same photograph as the listing images. The wood will have it’s own interesting colour, texture, imperfections and style. It is completely handmade. First of all, process starts with sanding the wood, putting biscuits in the wood for better stability. Next, I white wash the wood so the colours will pop,then manually transfer the photograph and covering it will a UV varnish. Finally, it is stapled and it’s ready to hang anywhere you like.
The photographs themselves are 5×7, 8×10 and 11×14 approximately, adding more width and length for the wood. Larger sizes can also be made by request. Larger sizes require more than one piece of paper for the transfers due to limits of the size of copies.
If you have a photograph that you would like to have transferred onto reclaimed wood, custom orders are always welcome, please send me a message to discuss your custom wall hanging.
Although all of images are color compatible for viewing online, most computer monitors vary in their color configurations and the images that you see may not have accurate color representation.
