I use regular paper, adhere it to the glass block with Modge Podge and then put two coats of Modge Podge on top.

I've always used the full label sheets. Let dry then spray with a couple of coats of clear acrylic sealer. Then just cut out the picture, peel the backing off and stick to the block.
The 1st few I did, I printed on regular printer paper and was going to laminate then glue to the block. Just seemed like too many steps and it was pretty messy! lol

I used vellum for my first try and it smeared all over.
The ink didn't dry . After that - I just used regular printer paper . I sealed it with diluted white glue and the light shined through great.

I use matte photo paper and run it thru my xyron label maker with one side laminate the other side sticker. Just peel and stick nothing more to do. You can also use spray adhesive and a decent sealer (either matte or glossy) Really it's all in how you want to do it.
