Waterslide Decal Application
Waterslide decals are perfect for hard surfaces. No special coating is needed on the surface. Tumbler makers use them frequently.
1) Place decal (dip in warm water ,not hot ) into a cup of clean water for 45-60 seconds and remove when the thin decal film begins to roll up and if so it will then straighten out again. When the film starts to loosen from the paper. (Discard backing material after the decal has been removed) Do not leave the paper for along time (over one minute ) in the water.
2) Apply decal to clean surface; ceramic, glass, metal, plastic, soap, candles, myllar balloons, model trains, planes, cars, etc. Work out air bubbles whit decal squeegee and let dry.It is important to remove all water and air.
NOTE: You can speed up drying time by placing your decorated objet under /near a fan. If you whis to protect your decorated item from surface scratches, moisture, or fading,then spray your dried decorated surface with acrylic varnish spray.
If your item is oven safe, you can cure the decal by baking the item in an oven at 200°F – 250°F for 10-15 minutes once the decal has been applied.
