OK so I have some questions....

1) From the looks of yours you went all the way to the edge, correct? For some reason I was thinking that I couldn't go to the edge and would have this HUGE border. 

2) What do I seal it with?

The sealing question is on my mind too...I'm not really very informed about sealers in general...would polyurethane...the brush on stuff work? Would it "melt" the transfer?

i have been planning a project just like this for my sisters xmas gift but of pics of her fave band. I have been using microsoft pictureIT and i kinda like the outcome of the pics but im thinking photoshop may be better for the look you achieved. im anxious to try out my first transfer project!!! I posted somewhere else an idea to make myself a  piece like this that I imagined with a glittery finish. Do any of you know of a way to protect your canvas with something like polyurethane that you could then put glitter on top of OR MIX IN? I'd also like to know about the same kind of idea for a tshirt. a glittery marilyn monroe on a bright red or black shirt and pearls and high heels. I wish I was Samantha from Bewitched and I'd just twitch my nose and all my crafty ideas would come to life~!

This is genius! My Dad is a ventriloquist (really) and he's VERY hard to get gifts for, but he loves his puppets. I'm going to make a "pop art" of his puppets! Does anyone know a way to seal it that will look like "brush strokes" like those painting reproductions they sell in furniture stores etc? That would be fun!

First of all, I think this is a really cool and inventive project, great job!

Second, Batgirl, it might be too late for this since it is after Christmas, but if you're still looking for the brush stroke effect, you should try acrylic medium. It's usually used to give acrylic paint more body and texture, but you can paint it on top of things like transfers or photos to texture them. I would try a pretty stiff brush to show bristle lines. They sell it at most art stores:

Try gel medium or gloss medium. This might also work for sealing the image as others were saying, if painted on thinly with a soft brush or sponge brush (Mod Podge might also work). I would try this on one you are not too attached to for practice, because I'm really not sure about "melting" the image.

I did this for Christmas and it turned out great! I'll try to post a pic, but I just sealed it with varnish and it worked fine. I did notice that it started to smear if I got too much varnish on it or worried it too much with the brush. A quick thin coat worked just fine!
