Mod podgeing photos to wood.

I followed a link on Pinterest to transfer laserjet printed pictures to a block of wood but when I tried to wipe off the paper from the back of the picture, after it set, a lot of the color came off too. Does anyone know how much gel medium to use to set it to the wood..I only coated the wood.

    Ok Gina, this is how I do it...I find an image I like...print it and then take it to Kinko's/fedex and have them Xerox it. The laser Toner is more stable and easier to work with...it IS technically possible to do it with inkjet, but since the ink is
