  1.  Print out your patches but make sure they are reversed so that the words read backwards.
  2. Cut out a piece of fabric the same size as your printout.
  3. Brush the Photo Transfer Medium onto the front of the printout over the patches.  Cover the printout so that you can’t see the images.
  4. Place the fabric over the Photo Transfer Medium and press.  Make sure it is smooth.  Allow to dry overnight.
  5. Spray water onto the paper side of the patches and lightly begin to rub until the paper begins to rub off.  Continue rubbing until all the paper is removed and you see the images clearly.
  6. Cut out the patches and adhere them to the backpack with Mod Podge Fabric.

Decorated candles using Mod Podge ® or Royal Coat ® Decoupage Finish are meant for decorative purposes and not for illumination. Many of the decorations would catch fire and be hazardous if the candle were burned. However, if you are using a wide pillar candle and the decorations do not go to the top of the candle, it can be burned down slightly to create a well, then a votive candle inserted into the well. A new votive candle can be inserted when the old one is finished. Use extreme caution and good judgment when burning candles that have been decorated.
First check to see if the napkin is 2 ply. If so, separate and lay aside. Brush Mod Podge directly on the your surface. Carefully place the printed napkin on the surface and lightly blot down with a dampened sponge. Start blotting in the center and work to the edge. Once it is in place, let dry. After about 30 minutes lightly apply a top coat of Mod Podge.
  1. Apply a coat of Mod Podge® to the inside of the form and allow to dry slightly. Place the Napkin design where desired and gently rub it flat with your thumb.
  2. Cover the image with a second very thin coat of Mod Podge®, beginning in the center and brushing out. Allow to dry thoroughly.
  3. Add special sponging or spouncing effects, as desired, around the design and let dry.
  4. Paint the whole inside with a light color of FolkArt® Acrylic Colors. If you want to use a darker color inside, first paint around the Napkin design with a light color, let dry and then add the darker color.
