How to Create Projects with IOD Paintable Decor Transfers!

Did we have you at “Create Projects”? Yah, we know all about the little spike of adrenaline the idea of creating can pump into your blood. Josie and I are all about inspiring you all to create and when we design  that’s at the core of each and every single product. Well, this product is very very special to us and I’ll tell you why. It began ten years ago ( don’t worry, unlike most stories that start that way, this one will be brief, you have creating to get to after all!) when Josie and I were designing paper crafting products and we developed and designed a product called “Paintables”. 12×12″ sheets of paper with water color texture and weight that had beautiful vintage designs intended to be painted and then used in paper crafts. We absolutely loved watching women sit and color these sheets with all kinds of mediums like water color pens, colored pencils, shimmer pots and more. The experience truly took one back to kindergarten when we just colored for the pure enjoyment of it. Fast forward to today and our IOD Paintable Decor Transfers are having the same effect on people everywhere. Nothing thrilled us more than to see Debi Beard on YouTube sharing her experience! Check it out here:

Debi used Midnight Garden full color Decor Transfer and Astoria Paintable Decor Transfer 🙂

One thing we ADORE about the IOD Decor Paintable Transfers is that they’re beautiful even when you DON’T paint them! Check out this example using Michelle Phippard of Serendipity House ‘s  beautiful dresser project

Josie and I created this project tutorial so you can see how easy it is to make one yourself!

Look how we show the same Decor Transfer applied to ply wood the same way but then “colored in” using watered down chalk style paints!

Ok, now I’m going to end with three important pieces of information that we have for you to get going with your OWN IOD Paintable project. One is to check out our plethora of detailed information on the best way to use the IOD Paintable Decor Transfers on our product page HERE .

Another is to make sure you join our community of creators who are using IOD and sharing tips tricks and projects. It’s a wonderful place to connect and ask questions! Check that out here  ( Make sure you answer all of the questions when requesting membership! ) IOD Creative Tribe .

Lastly, be sure to connect with an IOD stockist because they can keep you informed and supplied and they are well trained in all things IOD! Find your stockist HERE or HERE .

    Can you use the transfers on to fabric for pillows?

    • IOD Customer Service on March 26, 2019 at 10:23 am

      Hi Kirsten, I would recommend using our Decor Stamps for decorating pillows, but I have seen our Decor Transfers used on different materials before!

    Hi there! My name is Donna and I live in Toronto Ontario, Canada. I have been buying your transfers for the last 2 years and I recently started a passion project painting mason jars and putting your transfers on them, recently turned it into a business idea. I’m on Instagram at #coconjune. My website is started but still in the works.

    I have a question about purchasing product for my creations direct rather than through the retailer I’ve been going to in another city. Do you offer that service to small business? Would love to hear from you! I love your ideas and what you’ve done!!

    • IOD Customer Service on April 2, 2019 at 10:35 am

      Hi Donna, we love that you are using our designs for your creations! Please use our contact form here and we can help answer any questions you have. Happy creating!
