How to Photo Transfer With Mod Podge

    by LaurenKrotosky

    Mod Podge is an ideal material for getting images to stick to the surface of a craft project. It's a substance that's similar to glue, yet it dries clear and hard. Many types of items work well with Mod Podge, including your photos, which you can secure to a craft project using a simple technique with Mod Podge. It's inexpensive, easily available and will help you to show off your photos with pride.

    Things You'll Need

    • Medium-grit sandpaper
    • Rag
    • Paper plate
    • Paint brush

    Sand the surface onto which you'll apply the photo to create a smooth surface that will help the Mod Podge stick evenly. Use medium-grit sandpaper and wipe away any dust with a rag.

    Pour a dollar coin-size amount of Mod Podge onto a paper plate.

    Coat the sanded surface with a thin layer of Paper Mod Podge. Use a paint brush.

    Coat the back of the photo you're transferring with a thin layer of the Mod Podge. Press it to the prepared craft surface before the Mod Podge has a chance to dry.

    Cover the entire surface of the craft, including the photo, with another layer of Mod Podge. Let it dry for about two hours before handling it.

    • Open a door or window if fumes from the Mod Podge become too intense. Work in a well-ventilated area.
