instructions

Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. First, protect your work surface with waxed paper, parchment paper or some other protective mat.
  2. Using scissors, trim the excess paper edges from the photocopied image.
  3. Next, position the image face up on the protective surface.
  4. Using either a 1” foam applicator or a soft bristle Taklon brush, liberally apply Mod Podge Clear Image Transfer Medium to the front of the image. Because the medium is clear, it is possible to still see the image. Check to make sure the entire image is covered with the medium.
  5. While the medium is still wet on the image, immediately lift the image, flip it over, and then position it to the project surface image side down.
  6. Smooth the image, making sure it is fully making contact with the surface. Using light pressure with your fingers or a Mod Podge Squeegee, smooth the image starting from the out toward the edges of the image. This will remove any possible wrinkles, captured air pockets, and excess medium, which can then be wiped away.
  7. Allow the transferred image to dry a full 24 hours.
  8. After 24 hours, dab a wet sponge over the transferred image and lightly rub away layers of paper using the wet sponge or your fingers.
  9. Apply a coat of your favorite Mod Podge formula to seal.
