How to Use Specialty Products

IMAGE TRANSFER MEDIUM

Reverse the image when printing if transferring words, letters, or numbers. Trim image to desired size. Apply medium with brush to the surface and front side of image. Allow to dry. Apply another coat of medium to the surface and front side of image. While wet, place image face down onto surface. Smooth out creases and air bubbles. Remove excess medium with a damp cloth. Allow to dry for 8 hours. To remove paper, brush or sponge water onto the back of the image. Let sit for 2-5 mins. Use a soft sponge or fingers to gently rub away paper layers. Let dry. Repeat wetting process until all paper has been removed. For added durability, also apply as a topcoat. Cleans up with soap and water.

Tips for Specialty Products

To clean a finished piece, use soap and water on a soft rag or kitchen sponge. Clean up food or drink messes as soon as possible.

Americana Decor specialty products are water-soluble. Brushes and other tools will clean easily with soap and water.

IMAGE TRANSFER MEDIUM

Do not trim your image too closely. Leaving room around the image will allow you to gently sand the edges after you transfer your image to make it blend into the background better.

Use a brayer to smooth out the paper, always starting from the center and rolling outward.

Allow the piece to dry thoroughly before sanding any uneven edges away.
