Mod Podge Transfer Technique


I am certainly not the first blogger to post this technique up; I initially came across it on The Graphics Fairy, and she in turn had linked it from elsewhere. However, after using this technique, which I really, really like, on several projects, I thought I'd chime in with my 0.02, and share some tips on what works well for me.
So far, I've used the Mod Podge technique to transfer images to furniture and canvas. I tried it on pallet wood, which was not successful; the wood was simply too rough. I'm working on several pieces now, so thought I'd share what I've found works, and some of the finished projects.
1. Use a laserprinted, 2 color or gray-scale image. Color doesn't work that well.
2. Put the Mod Podge on the image when applying, not the piece.
3. Use a brayer to apply the image to the project.
4. Let it dry 6 hours, more is better.
5. Use an orbital sander with a 120 grit to remove paper, or use a damp rag.
6. Seal with clear acrylic, instead of Mod Podge so the finish isnt' sticky.

Happy transferring!

    I have a problem with the edges of the transfer really showing up after the paper is removed any way to avoid that issue?
