How do I decoupage?

How do I transfer a photo?
For photo transfer, you need to make sure you use a laser printer. A lot of times you’ll also want to reverse your photo before you print it, as it will apply backwards. Next, apply a bit of Gel to the front of the photo and to the surface you are transferring onto. BLOG
