Introduction: How to Print on Wood (Better Than Mod Podge)
This method of printing/transferring your laser-printed or photocopied image to wood (and other materials) is the best I have tried. These are the other methods I've used:
- Mod Podge Photo Transfer
- Liquitex Gel Medium
- Citrus solvent (rub-off method)
The method demonstrated here uses Acrylic Polyurethane as a transfer medium and has these advantages:
- Clear (not milky white like Mod Podge)
- Dries Fast (I got away with 45 minutes in the demonstration, though 2 hours or more is ideal)
- Durable (Less likely to rub off during paper removal process)

Hi! I love your videos.. they are very helpful.
I have a few questions for my profect-
1. How is minimax water based polycrylic for photo transfer
2. Can i transfer photo on a colourful acrylic painted wood. My wood base will be of acrylic paint and i want 1 colourful design on it
3. How is mod podge for transferring on small wooden pieces
Thanks for watching! 1. Minwax brand acrylic poly can work as well. The key is to be sure it's acrylic/water-based, and not regular oil-based polyurethane. 2. You can indeed transfer to acrylic painted wood! In fact, that's a good way to incorporate white (which doesn't print) into your design. 3. Mod-Podge can work for transferring as well. I just found it to be less transparent than Acrylic Poly and Liquitex. (Acrylic Poly is the clearest I've used.)
