Q: How do I create a photo transfer?
A:
Both Martha Stewart Crafts Decoupage Photo Transfer Mediums can be applied using one of these two techniques. The Decal Method is easier when including text and better suited for 3D surfaces, whereas the Direct Transfer Method is permanent and better for flat surfaces.

Decal Method: To create a photo transfer decal, place a photo copy of your favorite photo on a sheet of waxed paper photo side up. Apply a generous amount of Martha Stewart Crafts Decoupage Photo Transfer Medium to the front of the photo copy as smoothly as you can and allow to dry for 24 hours. Flip the photo transfer over and begin the process of removing the layers of paper by moistening the back and lightly rubbing over the backside of the photo copy with a small sponge. Continue removing paper until you no longer see white paper fibers. Allow to dry. When dry, if necessary, repeat last step if white paper fibers are still visible.

Direct Transfer Method: To create a photo transfer directly onto your project surface, place a photo copy of your favorite photo on a sheet of waxed paper photo side up. Apply a generous amount of Martha Stewart Crafts Decoupage Photo Transfer Medium to the front of the photo copy as smoothly as you can. Carefully flip the treated photo copy over so that the medium is now downwards. Position the prepared photo copy on your project surface where desired. Press lightly and smooth in place. Place project on a flat surface and allow to set for 24 hours. You are now ready to begin the process of removing the layers of paper by moistening the back with water and lightly rubbing over the backside of the photo copy with a small sponge. Continue removing paper until you no longer see white paper fibers. Allow to dry. When dry, if necessary, repeat last step if white paper fibers are still visible.
