My First Mod Podge Image Transfer onto a Clipboard

I picked up these two vintage clipboards for $1 each thrifting last month.  I liked the old clips but I hated the faux marble laminates.  The backs have the familiar brown masonite.

I knew ASCP would stick to the slick surface, so I painted  two coats of Old White on one of the clipboards.  I painted the other with black chalkboard paint.

Since I thought I would be hanging this clipboard in my kitchen, I used the Graphic Fairy's silverware image.

I made a toner photocopy of my inkjet image.  Then I cut closely around the image with a scissors, and spread Mod Podge Photo Transfer Solution over the image with a sponge brush.  I carefully laid the image on the bottom of the clipboard and smoothed it out carefully.

When the image was totally dry, I used a water spray bottle to moisten the paper.  I then began rubbing my fingertips over the paper until it came off in rolls.  I also sealed the clipboard and image with ASCP clear wax.

I cut out a vintage stove polish ad from a December 1917 Ladies Home Journal and added it to the clipboard.

I could also clip a photo or a recipe or even a small recipe booklet.

  2. So glad to see this image transfer technique still in use. I hadn't seen it in a while. I used to teach this method to the teens in Vacation Bible School. I asked someone recently about this method and she had never heard of it. Kudos to you...keep it alive.
    Your clipboard looks fantastic. What a neat addition to the kitchen!
