TripleTac glue is really a multipurpose medium that can be used on paper, canvas, cardboard, wood, metal, leather and some plastics, just like today's photo transfer onto a canvas.

Step 1:
Apply a generous coat of TripleTac to the surface that your are transferring the image onto (or direct to the photo).

Images printed from a laser printer (or patterned paper) will give the best result, however, images printed on a line printer will still work if you let dry overnight, or use a heat gun to set the ink.

Place the image onto the coated surface facedown and allow to dry (24 hours is recommended, or use a heat gun).

Step 2:
Using a small amount of water, gently rub the back of the paper with a wet finger or clot, until the paper starts to pill.

Continue wetting and rubbing until the image is revealed.

To avoid patchy results take care not to rub too much in the one area.

Step 3:
Apply a second coat of TripleTace to seal the image.

TripleTac Glue can transform each and every one of your precious memories onto a canvas, leave the canvas as a traditional photo, or dress with embellishments.

This project is brought to you by Edna Morrisedie.
