Brocante IOD Transfer (12"x16" pad-8 sheets)
IRON ORCHID DESIGN TRANSFERS
IOD Transfers are high-quality rub-on transfers that will add instant style to your projects. IOD transfers are very versatile and can be stunning on pieces of furniture both big and small, as well as home accessories wall art, textiles, and decor! Usable on painted furniture, walls, and all kinds of other DIY projects.
The pad format makes it easy and efficient to store transfer pieces on their non-stick backings. Every IOD transfer comes with a tool designed to rub on the image. There are convenient gridlines printed on the transfer backing for easy cutting and design positioning allowing you to confidently position the image exactly where you want it on your decor project. The IOD transfer backing can also be used to burnish the transfer after application to ensure full adhesion.
Keep your transfer with its backing sheet until you are ready to apply. Clean your project ensuring it is free of dust or debris, which will interfere with adhesion. Do not allow the adhesive side of transfer to touch anything prior to application. When handling the transfer, avoid letting the adhesive side touch itself. Do not store transfer in extreme temperatures or humid conditions, which can affect adhesion.
Start with a clean, dry, surface. For best adhesion, seal your project surface with a high-quality, water-based polyurethane sealer in matte before applying the transfer.
Carefully remove the transfer from its white backing. Slowly and carefully lower the transfer onto your intended surface, making sure that it does not touch until the placement is correct. Use small pieces of low-tack tape to hold it in place.
Using the provided tool, or one of your choice, start at one end of the transfer and rub firmly to adhere the image to the surface. Do this until the entire image is transferred. If any parts aren’t transferred when you lift, simply lay it back down and rub more on that portion. After it is transferred, with a clean dry hand, smooth down any bits that aren’t flatly adhered.
We recommend sealing with a water-based (or not harsh solvent based) sealer. Waxes created for chalk-type paints also work well if they don’t contain harsh solvents.
