  1. Cut printout and speedy-carve to desired overall shape
  2. Paint an even layer of gel medium on both printout (inked side) and speedy-carve
  3. Align the gel’d printout to the gel’d block, and press on using a brayer
  4. Let dry. Really. Let it dry. Leave it be.
  5. Dampen the back of the printout with a sponge or wet finger, then gently rub to remove paper
  6. Done correctly, this should leave your image (and a thin layer of gel medium) on the speedy-carve
