Mod Podge Photo Transfer Canvas + free printable



A couple of weeks ago I received a sweet, new product from Mod Podge.  I was so excited to try out their new Mod Podge Photo Transfer medium.

This is a really awesome way to transfer any image from computer paper on to any hard surface or fabric.  If you need an image transferred permanently, this is the way to go!

I decided I wanted to make something to go in my girls' room.  As you know I'm working on the room to add girly, pink elements for my daughters. As I was contemplating what design to add to my canvas I thought of making a print that said, "I am a child of God"-- but then I thought about it more and thought about the fact that I'm making this for my daughters and I thought of the theme, "We are daughters of our Heavenly Father who loves us and we love him."  I thought that would be more appropriate and dear for my sweet girls.

Excitedly I made this print, which you can print for yourself HERE

Because this medium does the exact reverse of your image I uploaded it into PicMonkey and flipped my image.



Here's how to make your own Mod Podge Photo Transfer Canvas.

MATERIALS NEEDED:
1. Print out of your image on plain computer paper from an Inkjet printer (Remember if your image has words to reverse the image.)
2. Mod Podge Photo Transfer Medium
3. Canvas 
4. Ribbon

STEP ONE:  Gather your materials.
 STEP TWO: Cut out your image to be the exact size of your canvas.

STEP THREE: Cover your entire image with the Photo Transfer Mod Podge.


STEP FOUR: Make sure the entire image is covered about 1/16" thick.  

It needs to be so thick, that you can't see your image.

STEP FIVE: Place the image on top of your canvas.  Smooth it down with your fingers.

STEP SIX: Leave it alone to dry for 24 hours.  Do not touch it.


STEP SEVEN: After 24 hours, it's time to reveal your image.  Take a washcloth or sponge and wet the top of the canvas.  Wipe away the paper and reveal your image underneath.  
Your photo has been transferred.


All done!  Everything's been transferred.  So fun and so easy.

I really loved how it turned out....but I felt like it needed a little more Omph.


So I grabbed some more mod podge (this time the regular gloss kind) and some matching ribbon.

 My last step was to mod podge a ribbon around the edges + front and mod podge everything together to seal it all up.



Now I'm really all done.  Love it!


Looks so lovely in my girls' room.

This is exactly what I have been wanting to do. I had found a way to transfer onto wood using traditional Mod Podge, but it didn't transfer all the way. I will buy this new product and give it a try. I was hoping to use canvas anyway. Yay!!!!

Love!! I tried it yesterday but it didn't work at all. Maybe because I followed a different tutorial where they covered the canvas instead of the picture?

I will mention that I've tried mod podge transfer now on three different projects.

As you can see here Canvas = great.
t-shirt = fail.
glass mug = fail.

It has a learning curve, for sure. And is not right for all surfaces.

Thanks for sharing this! I had seen a tutorial that called for printing directly on tissue and let me tell you, that just ended in a huge mess that had me cleaning out bits of ink-stained paper balls out of my printer for the better part of my day. It was a good thing the printer wasn’t destroyed because I still want to try doing this. -Stasia
