Other Supplies

Glass Jar, One photocopy of a photo, Foam paintbrush, Water, Sponge

Instructions

  1. Clean the glass jar with hot soapy water.
  2. Make photocopies (not inkjet copies) on a dry toner/laser copier (the kind at a local copy shop) Some inkjet printers will work but most smear so be sure to test if you want to try an inkjet copy. Trim your copy to fit the front of the jar. Tear the edges of the paper to create a distressed look.
  3. Coat the photo with a thick layer of Mod Podge Photo Transfer. The photo should be totally white with no image showing through.
  4. Place the photo Mod Podge side down onto the jar. Smooth with your fingers from the center. Press the corners and edges to be sure they stick. Make sure to wait 24 hours before proceeding to the next step.
  5. Wet the image and wait 2 minutes. Working in a circular motion, gently rub off the paper to reveal the image below. You may have to do this step a few times before all the paper is removed.
  • PROJECT TIP: Give your transfer an antique look by coating the image with Antique Mod Podge.
