Soak a washcloth and carefully saturate the paper, rubbing in small circles to remove the fibers. You'll start to see the paper come up, revealing the handwritten recipe transfer underneath. (Note: Take your time removing the paper fibers, being careful not to overwork the surface so the transfer doesn't peel off. You may find it's easier to remove the fibers with your fingers.) Once the board is clear of paper and the cutting board is dry, apply two to three more coats of decoupage glue, then let it cure for another 72 hours.
