How to use: 

Remove them from the backing and place them color (glossy) side up on the surface where you would like to adhere the transfer. Use a wooden stick (included) to rub on the glossy top of the transfer, this will release the ink from the heavy plastic it is on, and adhere it to the surface you are working with.

While our transfers are quite durable, if you plan to use them on a high-traffic surface and want additional protection, you can seal them with either our “Matte Sealer” or “Bright Idea” lacquer. For hard, flat surfaces (such as furniture or trays) apply our Matte Sealer with a foam roller.

For hard, rounded or odd-shaped surfaces (such as lamps), spray with a coating of our “Bright Idea” lacquer.

Note: both sealants are for interior use only and should not be applied to fabric. Sealants further adhere the transfer and smooth edges to avoid chipping. They do not protect from scratching. Re-apply as needed over time.
