A (Really) Simple Guide to Transferring Magazine Images to Fabric

Page 2 of 2

Note: If your image has text, it will be reversed in the final print. To make a print with text, reverse the image on a copy machine before you begin.


1. Gather your supplies. The images here differ from the cover photo because I tried this several times with pictures from different magazines. It's safe to say that some work better than others.

2. Take your photo and brush gel medium all over the side you want to use as your print.

3. Place or "glue" it down to your piece of fabric.
