Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Use scissors to 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 Photo Transfer Medium liberally to the front of the image. This medium is thick in consistency and white in color; you will NOT be able to see the image once the medium has been applied. Be sure the entire image is covered with the medium.
  4. While the medium is still wet on the image, immediately lift the image from the protective work surface, 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; the excess medium 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. When dry, if a white haze still appears, a thin layer of paper still exists. 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.
