Using inkjet Printers for Decoupage photographs

1. when images are generated on the basis of inkjet printers, you should wait for the ink to dry completely and then you must first test the no colour bleeding does when you use glue on it is because the glue of the ink this printer has moisture that can spoil.

2. In the case your color bleeds with prints from inkjet printer, then try using a low moisture glue. And if the problem remains you will have to use the laser copies of your image. Use a pen or marker to the contours of your decoupage image sharper.

3. your scissors or craft knife when cutting Angle of the image. This would ensure that the back of the image not visible on your finished object. Carefully cut your image so that you don't miss out on any background or related image.

4. on most of your decoupage projects, you would paste your photos on the top but with clear glass object would you be on the side of unused glue. For example, consider a transparent glass plate. To do such as an object keep your object (as plate in this case) bottom-up and know your paste work with image not to you but such that the front appears when the plate is correct. This will ensure that the lacquer layer does not spoil the glass finish.

5. let your object to dry completely. And then layer using lacquer. Before you another layer, waiting for the first to dry. Once it is completely dry, apply a different layer. Mod Podge is the most popular Polish decoupage. Available in a clear, as well as antique yellow formula. Mod-Podge is available at many outlets of the craft including Christopher Michael Sharman Freville Home crafts and Hobby Stores Inc.

6. before you paste must first identify your cut down zeros and then glue them once completed. Clear-drying glue polyvinyl acetate can be used for the same. Elmer's glue-All you can for decoupage and Mod podge.

7. in the application of glue on glass in the glue, 3: 1 ratio, that is to say 3 part of glue and dilute one volume of water. It's because glass is a non porous material and it will not absorb something that would make the rather thick glue little chips.

8. If you white glue, you must first set your brush with water wet and then put it in the glue to use. Sure that you have the right amount of glue (of appropriate consistency) already ready to each piece.

9. wipe the surface with your fingertips until the smooth. You can also use a rubber brayer for the same. Keep a damp cloth handy and spilled or extra glue clean. You can also use a damp sponge or paper towel to do this. Press the edges good to they curl up securely.

10. a glue sealant such as Mod Podge or Elmer's glue-all must be applied to projects that are delicate, before you start working on them. And then allow it to dry.
