Well, Mod Podge has the answer! Transferring a photo onto just about any surface such as wood, metal, glass, terra cotta and even fabric is so easy to do using Mod Podge Photo Transfer Medium! Take a look at the photo below, it was transferred onto an inexpensive wood plaque and now is preserved for years to come!
Regular matte Mod Podge will make the image translucent so that the surface's texture (ie: wood grain) will show through the photo. Mod Podge Transfer Medium is white, and it will make the photo opaque. If you are using fabric, choose Mod Podge Transfer Medium.
Yep, you heard right! You can do an inkjet photo transfer to wood with just Mod Podge. ... You don't need a laser printer or photo transfer medium either for this tutorial. It's different from the Mod Podge photo transfer medium in that it gives your image a clear background.
A waterbased sealer, glue and finish. Non-toxic, non-flammable. Use this crafting favorite to decoupage almost anything on wood, glass, terra cotta, metal, canvas and more, then seal with a top coat of Mod Podge. Projects dry to a protective matte, satin or gloss finish.
Decoupage crafts are a very specific form of crafting that dates back centuries! In its broadest meaning, the art of decoupage is essentially the art of decorating an object with cut outs. ... Mod Podge is one of many available decoupage glues, each with a different consistency and finish.
First, get your wood slice, laser printed photo, Ultra Seal, and craft brush. This is all you'll need for the first step. Trim your photo to fit onto your wood slice. Remember that the photo will be placed face down if you are transferring it to the wood, so it will be flipped on the wood slice.
You can transfer pictures of your choice onto wooden objects using card stock, washable Elmer's glue and Elmer's Glue-All (a clear-drying polyvinyl acetate or PVA glue). The ink from the printed image on the card stock seeps into the glue while it is wet.

Add a little liquid or dish soap and scrub with a brush to remove as much as possible. Option two involves petroleum jelly, also known as Vaseline. To use this method, scrape off any excess Mod Podge that you can. Work the Vaseline into the stain, and then remove that with dishwashing liquid.
You can Mod Podge a photo directly to glass, but can you photo transfer to glass? The answer is no â€“ not directly. You'll need to use the â€œdecal method.â€ In the decal method, you're going to print out photos on printer paper (not photo paper) and then paint them with Mod Podge photo transfer medium.
The verdict: you can use Elmer's Glue to decoupage. The finish seems less shiny than Mod Podge, but I like it. A spray of clear laquer will help protect it, but you'll still want to keep it out of the weather.
To make a jar of fake / homemade Mod Podge you need 1 cup of glue and 1/3 cup of water. These proportions are perfect â€“ don't mess with them. Other internet recipes for homemade Mod Podge abound but they are TOO WEAK. Beware!
Gesso does seal the canvas... Mod Podge can do either, it can be a glue or to seal the work on top. RE: Manda_K: Gesso does seal the canvas... Mod Podge can do either, it can be a glue or to seal the work on top.
Fixative Spray â€“ Perhaps the most versatile option and one that can suit a whole host of printed media is the fixative spray. Sprayed onto the printed media directly, this solution adds a layer of transparent protection that when left to dry will allow you to handle the print freely and make it waterproof.
