Problems with crafting

Problems with crafting a small photo transfer on wood because of the glue. I do not know why nothing works. Every time i try to remove the paper the image goes as well. I have tried to make it at least 10 time with different type of glue, gel and still nothing. I made one ok and not when i will get paid for it nothing works. Maybe my bad luck has something to do with it. Maybe the paper has to do with this because it's very hard to remove it with water. But they are all the same. The printer its ok works great. So i do not know what else to try. 3 different photos non worked so i have to blame the glue because nothing else seams more guilty then that. But what else to try??

I like the picture but am not sure what you are trying to do. Are you wood burning?

This is a craft I am not familiar with. Have you thought of taking the project down to the local crafts store (Michaels, ArtCo, etc.) and asking for advice?

i would love to take this project somewhere i can get some advice but i my country the only help i can get is YouTube, plus i can not find the same stuff i see on YouTube. That's why it's harder/. this is actually easy if you have what it's need it. A good photo, a laser printer, some gel medium and wood and you can transfer the photo on wood

No it is not wood burning even if i would love to learn that. It's photo transfer on wood. You print your photo on normal print paper, take some medium gel or mod podge (things that i can not find here) put it on wood with a brush or sponge equal and put your photo face down on wood , press and be sure you do not have any air pockets. let it dry till next day, and after you can remove the paper on top slowly with a sponge and water or instead of sponge use your fingers. But very careful , only the paper not the pic under. You can find lots of videos on YouTube.

not to many almost equal to 00, i have to search online and i am happy when i find something similar. For example i am searching for some time for thermal transfer paper like the one it's used to transfer photos on shirts, nothing in stores, i called everywhere. And online i found here but at very big prices. So i will order from ebay. that's my chance to find what i need

I have never tried that. Can you maybe order what you need from Amazon or someplace like that?
