  10. 10
    You need to take your image to the photocopier and scan it, and if it's got a writing on, you need to flip it over so that it is in reverse.
    I like to use a thin paper, the thinner paper is the better.

    You can take it to go all over the edges of the canvas, but for today, I just want it to be super pause onto the canvas.

    Now, sleeves are up and I am ready.
    The Mod Badge that I am using is the mate paint, and I think this is better, so I am going to open it up and break the seal.

    Next thing to do is to center the image over the canvas.

    What I would like to do is to place the canvas on a book.

    Then, using a roller, try to get rid of all the wrinkles by moving them around the sides.

  21. 21
    As you are wiping, make sure that you don't get any of that glue that surrounds the edges on top of the paper, and keep on going until it becomes smooth.

    Now, as I am getting to the edge there, you can see that glue started to come out.

    Leave it for twenty-four hours to completely dry off.

    Give it a time to make sure that it is absolutely perfectly flat and wrinkles free.

  27. 27
    Be careful, not to rub the paper with a glue on your hands, because once I made this mistake and the paper came out.

  28. 28
    Next thing to do is to get the sponge and load it up with water and wipe the top layer of paper, and what should happen is that the underneath image should start to appear in front of you.

    I've got the color coming through, so just spend a better time and make this nicely wet.

    To be perfectly honest, what I did to this canvas now isn't like what I've done to the others, because I ran the water tap over them, and it was much easy, as I am such an impatient person.
    Once you get to this stage and the image is starting to appear, you're going to have a cup of coffee and leave it.

    The time you run your hand over the canvas, and you find that there is a bit of something hidden, we can tell that it's ready and we should start the work.

    Wet your fingers with a sponge.

  33. 33
    Slowly and gently rub the paper and keep rubbing it away until the top layer of paper is removed.
    I don't know how many layers of papers they put on to use, probably two to three fine layers.

  34. 34
    You just keep on going like this, until all starts to come off.
    The time that it will take is depending on how thick your paper is.

  35. 35
    Now if there are any air bubbles, this means that the image that you were pressing into it starting to left off, also that is an indication that the paper didn't stick onto the glue, and that it will not be able to bring your image across.
    Don't rub too hard, if you do so, you will be rubbing off the image that you first put the glue on.

    For the area that I've marked it up, I just need do rub it really very slowly and gently until hopefully I can retrieve it, but I think from the way it looks, it won't actually matter.

    Some people use the other edge of the sponge and just rub it away.

    Personally, I think that my hand is much better.
    although the sponge does take it off quicker, but I've got more control using my hand. So just keep going into that until it's all done.

    Just keep rubbing it gently with your finger until you get the paper off.

    Sometimes that would happen because from the beginning you didn't apply enough glue on it, another thing that if there are letters in the image that you're going to do, make sure that you flip them around otherwise the letters are going to be inverse.

    The word of this original image is "last" but at the moment, I think it's saying something else because it is now inverse.

    The other thing is here when I was doing this, I was rubbing it a little bit too hard, and some of the black lines had come off.

    I had just put some letters on the top, and I've put a lovely coat, another coat of the Madge podge, which is a nice sort of shade dull.
