Inkjet Photo Transfers

If you want to try a Mod Podge photo transfer, you should first know that there are two types of photo transfers you can do. The first is an inkjet photo transfer to wood using school glue and Mod Podge (Matte or Gloss). This will give you a transparent background . . . meaning if it’s a dark color or pattern, you will see it. This type of photo transfer looks particularly good on light backgrounds and unfinished wood.

Laserjet Photo Transfers

The second type of image transfer uses Mod Podge Photo Transfer medium, which is a product you can find at craft stores like Michaels and Jo-Ann. You can read my top five tips for using Mod Podge Photo Transfer medium, but the most important thing you should know about this formula is that it will produce an opaque, white background. This means you can use it on dark colored items too! You won’t need another glue – you can use the medium by itself to produce desired results.

Photo Transfer to Glass

You can do a DIY photo transfer using either of these methods on fabric, wood, and tin. If you want to do a photo transfer to glass, you’ll want to use the photo transfer medium and the decal method in this photo transfer to glass.
