Tip 


Laser printed pictures on lightweight printer paper work best for this exchange technique. 








Step 1 

Paint the wood trimming and let it dry overnight. Print out the picture you might want to apply to your trimming on customary or lightweight white paper. Slice and trim the picture to the extent of the adornment.

Tip 

Apply gel medium equally; not too thick, but rather not very thin. 

While the gel is as yet wet, put the picture (confronting down) onto the wooden surface. Daintily press the picture down with your fingers so the paper adheres to the surface. 

With a Mastercard or popsicle stick, softly polish the surface with smooth, even weight. Put aside and permit to dry totally.

Tip 


Ensure you shine with consistent weight - not all that daintily that the gel doesn't hold fast to the paper, yet not all that hard that the gel is pushed out from underneath to the edges. 









Step 3 

At the point when the gel is totally dry, dunk a wipe in water and rub the wipe over the picture. This will uncover the picture and begin to expel the paper backing.
