This technique works on both painted wood surfaces (as long as they are smooth), as well as bare wood.
1. Directions for transfer: Place gel on front of image only - place face down on wood surface.
2. Remove any air bubbles using credit card and fingers- being extra careful NOT to get any gel on the back of the paper. The image must be pressed into the surface - it can't just "float on the glue".
3. Let dry THOROUGHLY -overnight is best. Most transfers fail because the glue hasn't thoroughly dried before attempting to remove paper.
*DO NOT PEEL PAPER OFF TO TEST DRYNESS.
4. Apply water to the back of paper and rub it all off leaving the ink (the image) on the wood.
5. Repeat several times until all of the “dried white” paper, is gone.
