Waterslide Decal Laser
(0 reviews)  

Caution! This Waterslide Decal transfer paper is designed for use with dry toner based Colour Photo Copiers that use silicon release oil. Some desktop Laser Printers work well. (See our list of printers supplied by customers below.) If you are unsure or cannot find a machine, then do not use this paper!! Please be aware that many new photo copier machines have changed their technology making them unsuitable for this Waterslide paper!

For non-absorbent shiny surfaces, no glue other than the gum on the back of the transfer is required. Simply soak the decal in water and slide the transfer onto the carrier. Expel all air bubbles with a rubber squeegee and allow to dry for 24 hours. The image can be varnished for protection with both acrylic and oil based varnish.

A good tip if you want to stretch the decal around a difficult shape is to use a tiny drop Methylated Spirits under the decal and apply the wet decal onto this. This will soften the decal allowing it to stretch around almost any shape. When dry it will also give very good adhesion.

To bake onto ceramics, glass and metal to give a hard waterproof finish:
Copy the image in reverse. Put the sheet with the images on in a hot domestic oven or use a heat gun to make sure the toners are completely fused on the paper before cutting and soaking in water. This will avoid small air bubbles later.
Soak the transfer off and apply face down, toners next to the ceramics and wash away any gum on the surface of the decal. Then squeegee out any air bubbles. Put immediately into a domestic oven on the lowest possible heat setting for at least 1 hour then slowly increase the temperature as little as possible every 15 minutes until the image goes shiny like a glaze. This should take at least another 2 hours to reach (about 200 degrees C gas mark 7) or 350-400 degrees F. The longer you take the better the result.
