I would also try something like a spray shellac or varnish as long as you do a couple of experiments first.
Would appreciate tips from anyone...I used a gel medium gloss and my photo turned out super dark. I've been practicing my technique and when I use the Mod Podge brand photo transfer, it's bright and true to color. (It dries white though so if you miss adhering the photo anywhere, you have a white spot.) I splurged on the Liquitex gel and was so disappointed to see it turn out so dark. Any ideas?
I've used matte gel medium, and gloss gel medium. Before you print your photo, you may consider lightening it on the computer first. Also, I highly recommend using FedEx/Kinkos. I've notice that colors come out better.
Please help me. I have tried this many times and I keep getting red areas. I have tried different transfers and different woods. What am I doing wrong? Could it be the printer? Please please please help.
this is great work
i need to know if there is any Alternative of Gel Medium
thanks in advance
The picture which is better for it to be on, printer paper, or an actual picture, tried a picture and it got stuck and i couldnt get it to come off? now im trying a picture printed from my printer on regular paper, ? But what is better? what do you find that works?
I don't think you can use plain mod podge to do the transfer, no. Though they do have their own photo transfer gel. See my comment above.
I've had the best results having my pictures printed at FedEx. I only have a toner printer at home. Not sure what kind of ink they use but it works and doesn't look washed out.
Great idea! I made it and love it! I combined my image transfer with another ible to create a baby stat board to hang on the wall in his room! I love how it turned out, now I just need to hang it!
