Material needed:

Image printed on laser printer
Glass plate with flat bottom
Mod Podge Photo Medium
Foam brush
Wax paper
Water and sponge

Step 1
In order to be successful you'll need to use an image that was printed on a laser printer and not a standard printer.

Step 2
When you get the print made at a local printer make sure you get 2 copies in case you make a mistake.

Step 3
If your image has words, you'll need to reverse the words on the image before it is printed.

Step 4
Select a plate that has a flat bottom and sides for your first project.

Step 5
Trim your photo and lay them out on a piece of wax paper.


Step 6
Cover the image completely with Mod Podge Photo Medium. Use the sponge brush to smooth out the Mod Podge Photo Medium . You will want this think so you can't see the image.

Step 7
Let dry completely for 24 to 48 hours.

Step 8
Use your sponge and water to wet the back of the image. You will want to wet the image until the paper softens.

Step 9
Now you want to carefully wipe away the paper on the back of the image with a sponge or your fingers.

Step 10
Once the paper is removed you can now carefully trim your image and place it on your plate.

Step 11
The image will dry and stick to the plate because of the Mod Podge Photo Medium.
