    Hi there. I would like to know how to hide the darker areas once the transfer has been made onto the paint. It always leaves the paint slightly darker. Any suggestions other than sanding it down?

      @Ernst Greyling I don't know what transfer medium you are using Ernst and over what paint brand. I use both Annie Sloan's decoupage as a transfer medium and Artisan Enhancements transfer medium over Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan. Both of these have not darkened the paint. You sometimes get a lighter outline left from transfers if you have not rubbed all the backing paper off. In this case, I would take a kitchen sponge that has the rough green bit on the back, lightly water it and go over the transfer. This will take a little more of the backing paper off. Then you can wax. Other than that, I don't know what to tell you. Either way, hope this helps.
