How do I get rid of the white “Halo” around my Transfer Gel image transfer?

After removing the paper pulp, after the surface has dried, occasionally a white “halo” will appear around the transferred image. To remove or reduce the halo, lightly sand the dried image with a fine grit (250-800). The light sanding loosens the fine paper pulp fibers creating the halo. Next, lightly mist the halo area. Slowly, using fingertips, work edges very gently removing excess paper pulp around the halo. Do not use too much pressure when sanding or when rubbing with your fingertips. Excessive pressure can accidently distress the painted finish below the transfer.
