And the magic is all in the Liquitex Gel Medium which you can get from Amazon or Michael's. The Gel Medium lifts the link off of a printed piece of paper and adheres it to another surface.

4. Once the gel medium is totally dry, moisten the paper with a washcloth. Make sure it's totally soaked and then begin to rub off the paper. This is the most time consuming part.
Do it slowly and don't press too hard or you might lose patches of ink.
I recommend working on the key parts of the image (faces?) first. You will almost definitely lose flecks of ink during the process. That's fine and is even kind of charming - but sometimes you accidentally los a nose or something and it's just not worth finishing. When this happens to me, I just let the paper dry back out, grab some sandpaper, and start over from the beginning.
The paper comes off in layers. You might have to do this step in two or three shifts because as the water dries you will better be able to see lingering fibers of the paper.
Rewet it and carry on.
5. Once you've removed all the paper and it's dry, cover it with Mod Podge. Maybe give it a couple coats.
Consider taking a picture of it in another room next to a succulent.
Good luck with your image transfers, and I'm happy to help you troubleshoot!
