      Yes, there are many ways to transfer a pattern. My favorite is to use a rubber stamp with the pattern you want and simply burn over the impression. I don’t use any of the other options such as burn through paper (you have to clean up the burn on the wood because you can’t see it) and heat transfer which I don’t like the mess left behind from the transfer ink. Just my opinion.

    I read the other day that if you have your photo printed by a laser jet printer not an inkjet that you could actually iron the pattern onto your boards. I have not tried it yet but will soon .

      Yes you can. It is not very clean though and leaves residue on the wood. I don’t recommend it but for some projects it is a help. Good luck!
