Free Printables – Antique Cow Image Advertisement Transfer Projects

Normally, I only post antique graphics on Wednesdays, but I have a few new antique advertisement images that I used on several different projects, so you are getting both the printable images, as well as my projects today.

I bought a stack of antique books that were all pretty damaged, but hoped to be able to salvage a few images from them.  Among them was this 1917 almanac booklet, put out by the makers of Dwight’s Cow Brand Soda.  Fortunately, even though all of the pages were brittle and broken, there were 3 really nice images that were in salvageable condition.  This is one of the pages from the almanac booklet.  It was missing one cover, but the other cover had 2 wonderful colored graphics that I fell in love with.
I scanned them at high resolution, and had them printed full-page size at Staples.  I had one board that was a leaf from an antique table, so my husband cut it into shorter lengths and I painted each piece with homemade chalk-style paint (using Blue Minerals).  Once dry, I transferred the image to the board, using the same method I used here.  I love using a paintbrush for projects like this, so the brush strokes add some texture beneath the image that really gives an aged look to the finished piece when I use my palm sander over the image.  This one is available in my shop here.

This piece was created exactly the same way, with one of the other boards.  When rubbing the paper off the transfer, occasionally I lose a bit of the image, but I don’t stress out about it, because my goal is to make a sign/coat hook that looks like an antique, so those areas where the transfer rubbed off just makes it look more authentic.

Since I was on a roll, I decided to transfer one of the images to a flour sack towel as well.  I used Transfer Artist Paper, which always ends up looking like a distressed image when I use it.

Here are the images for you.   I think there are so many great projects that could be created with them.
