Instructions

Dish Towels

1. Gather the images that you would like to transfer.  Photocopy them on a toner copier.  Be sure to reverse your image if you have any text.  Trim around your images so only the part you want to transfer is showing.

 

2. Squeeze a dollop of Transfer Medium onto the top of the image.  Apply a thick layer over the image. (1/16 thick)  Slip a piece of wax paper in between the layers of the oven mitt.

 

3. Position image (wet side down) on the top of the oven mitt. * Don’t place the transfer where the mitt will touch hot objects. * Allow to dry 24 hours.  With a wet sponge, wet the image and let it soak for 2 min.  Working in a circular motion, rub away the paper.  The image magically stays! Enjoy!  Allow to dry.  Wash cold and Hang dry.

 

4. Doodle on to the photo transfer with markers.
