  • How to use a printing techniques. Image Transfer With Mod Podge - Step 1
    Step 1

    I decided to use some Khadi paper as it's got a really nice feel to it as it's 100% recycled cotton. I then cut it down to size and placed that to the side. Then all you need to do is brush the Mod Podge onto the printed side of the image. (If you want the image to be a particular way round, you may need to reverse it so when you place it on the paper it comes out the right way)

    Then place the image onto the piece of paper, make sure it's stuck down properly and then leave it to dry. (I left it over night but a few hours should be ok)

    I also placed one of the images onto wood to see how that would come out.

    Once the image has dried you will need to get a wet sponge and rub the top off the image. You will see some of the printed paper come away from the paper / wood.

    After this you'll see your image appear. If you rub too much the image will come away from the paper but you can use this in a good way to make your edges look not too perfect, almost like the image has been painted on. The image worked on the wood as well which was exciting. You may have to let the paper dry a few times and rub it again to get rid of the remaining top layer of paper but then you will be left with a unique print. You could use them on their own or put them into books or layer over the top of them with paint or even stitch into them. The possibilities are endless!
