This is an easy project that anyone can do with just a few key supplies. Transfer a photo on wood. DIY tutorial.


What you need:

-A piece of wood (mine was a small cutting board from the thrift store)

-A laser printed copy of your photo, the copy should be the mirror image of how you would like it to appear on the wood. This ONLY works with laser copies. It won’t work with ink jet.

-A sponge brush

-Scissors to cut out your photo

-A rag to soak your photo

-A cup or plate to pour your gel medium and modge podge into
