Step-by-Step Instructions

The best method for applying Mod Podge Image Transfer Clear Medium to a photocopied image is to first protect your work surface with either waxed paper, parchment paper or a Mod Podge Silicone Craft Mat.  

  1. Using scissors, trim the excess paper edges from the photocopied image.  
  2. Next, position the image face up on the protective surface.  
  3. Using either a 1” foam applicator or a soft bristled, Taklon brush, apply Mod Podge Clear Image Transfer Medium liberally to the front of the image. This medium is clear or see-through, making it possible to still see the image. Check to make sure the entire image is covered with the medium.
  4. 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.
  5. It is best to smooth the image making sure it is fully making contact with the surface. Using your fingers or a Mod Podge Squeegee and while using light pressure, smooth from the center towards the edges of the image. This will remove any possible wrinkles or captured air pockets and excess medium which can be wiped away.
  6. Allow the transferred image to dry a full 24 hours.
  7. 24 hours later, dab a wet sponge over the transferred image then lightly rub away layers of paper using the wet sponge or your fingers. 
    • ​​NOTE:  A good tip is to work this step in stages remove layers of paper, allow it to dry, then wet it again and remove additional layers. By working in stages and removing a little at a time, the image will not be compromised or damaged by removing too many layers too quickly.
