Tips and Tricks

  • Fonts must be printed mirror-inverted.
  • For used looks, tear out images, do not cut them out.
  • The medium must not be spread over the pasted image during application.

How it is done:

  • Saw the book end in the shape required.
  • Print out the photo back-to-front on a laser printer and cut out.
  • Paint the clean and dry background as well as the surface of the printout fully with Marabu Photo Transfer medium. Do not leave out any areas.
  • Place the printout with the printed image on the background and smooth down with a scraper or finger. Remove any excess medium straight away. Do not spread the medium over the paper applied. Leave to dry for 2 hours or dry with a hair dryer for ca 8 minutes.
  • Wet the paper printout with water and soak it well. Carefully rub the paper with a finger or sponge. Repeat the procedure until all paper layers have been removed.
  • Screw the corners onto the wooden plates.
  • Paint over with Aqua matt varnish to remove paper fibre residues and protect the picture.
