How to decoupage a poster onto wood

leah2412June 25, 2012

I am looking to transfer three octopus triptych prints to three separate pieces of wood. How do I go about doing this? I have heard different ways to do so. Has anyone done this before with sucess?

Back in middle school we used something called Mod Podge. I think it is still available. I'd do a test first before trying it on a poster.

Sand the wood smooth.....glue the pictures on the wood using a cellulose type of glue.....whan ti dries coat with Modgepodge....if that the look you want....other wise cover with several coats of non yellowing varnish.

Ive decoupaged, but not a poster....I've used mod podge under and over the paper. Only thing to be careful of is once the paper is wet it will stretch so it may rumple if you're not careful.
