Create a ‘long’ piece of wood, ideal for your photo  key chain I have a 3″ x 3″ wood-place. You’re soft enough to cut to size with a carpet knife, X-Acto knife – you just need patience and a steel rule to guide you.
step 2. Once you are done creating your wood-right corner, sand the edges and the front and back with fine abrasive paper. step 3. You drill a hole on the top to make room for the keychain ring, and later with a drill with a small drill bit – would be the size of, relatively, how big or small your keychain ring would be. step 4. Well, it’s time for the fun part! Print out your image – don’t forget to flip it before you print. The starting point of the photo size on the size of your wood strips, in my case 1″ x 3″. step 5. You wear a thick layer of photo transfer medium to your image, and place it face down on your piece of wood. Use a brayer to push out the bubbles and reduce the image on the wood. step 6. After drying, wet the paper and carefully RUB the paper until your image shows. Be careful with rubbing the paper too much, unless you want a really aged look to your keyring. step 7. When you are finished, remove the excess paper, let’s ‘antique’ it. You can use antique wax and apply it on the edge of your keychain. step 8. With the same brush (unwashed) apply a layer of Matte Mod smorgasbord. The remaining residues of the ancient wax-mix with Matt-Mod-to create a smorgasbord to a slight sepia tinge. Make sure that the faces don’t any scattering have stains from wax or paper before it dries. step 9. Add to your keychain ring, and you're done!
