  1. Decide which of the images you would like to apply to each glass decanter. Make a color laser copy of each image to the size desired. Trim each image.
  2. Lay your trimmed selections image side facing UP on your craft mat.
  3. Squeeze a generous amount of Photo Transfer Medium onto a foam plate. In smooth strokes, apply the medium over the images. Apply a thick coat so that you cannot see the image. Cover the entire image. Let dry 24 hours.
  4. Carefully bend the craft mat back to release the image corner.
  5. Flip the images over so the paper side is facing UP.
  6. To reveal the image, press a semi-damp sponge over the image in sections and let the dampness set for 2 minutes. Then rub over the wet paper in a circular motion removing the paper. Repeat until the image is completely revealed. Let dry.
  7. Repeat rubbings may be necessary in parts where the paper is still adhered. Let dry.
  8. Trim the final images if necessary. Place on the glass decanters.
