It dries super fast, so that during the drying, I worked on my picture (painting is optional).Since the photo has text, I reversed the image before printing on plain paper with my laser printer. Printing Laser prints work as well as DRY ink toner (such as HP ink). You may need to do some research or experiment, to see if your printer will dry the ink. For step, I squeezed a generous amount of the carrier medium on the image . . .TIP: I put everything on my Mod-hodgepodge silicone Mat, which is great for this – you can use wax paper if you’d like but make sure you protect your work surface. . . . . and, with my foam brush, spread it until the image was mostly hidden. For the second step, I put the picture of (image side down) on the plywood and smoothed out air bubbles with my fingers and a brayer (the brayer is great, but if you don’t have to use a rolling pin, a glass, bottle, etc).be Sure to keep a damp cloth nearby to dried clean up, no muddy extra transfer medium (as you can see on the bottom of the plywood in the picture) than when it dries, it is quite hard and difficult to get rid of.And now the hard part: patience. I have the whole thing aside for 24 hours to dry. as soon As it dried, I used a damp cloth and RUB away the paper, shows the image (this is the third stage!). After removing, the top layer, I let it dry a bit and then it went back to catch all the places I missed or left over paper fuzz. It’s better, RUB gently and repeat the wetting process than to RUB too hard and RUB off the image. I wanted a very vintage/beat-up feeling, so I went with my sander and sanded away the edges of the graph revealed to the plywood, and once I was happy with the look I sealed the whole thing with two layers of Mod-hodgepodge Mat.Now you know how to transfer photos to wood! Easy, sorta fast (if you don’t count the passive drying time) and cheap wall art!
