How to use Waterslide Decal Paper

It’s really easy to get satisfying results, even with your very first try. There is no “knack” involved and professional results are available simply by following our special papers instructions inside every pack. See our video tutorial to see how to create your own decals using the clear decal sheets.

The process to create your decals using the inkjet waterslide paper is supplied with every pack we provide. In a nutshell, you simply print your image, cut it out, seal it with acrylic spray and dip into water.

Your decal will then slide away from the backing sheet ready for you to apply to your ceramic surface.

See our video zone which shows me making a Jessie J mug for my niece.

I dropped the image that she wanted to use into Microsoft word, printed it onto our quality decal paper and cut the image out. I then sprayed the decal with clear acrylic varnish. Once sealed, I dipped the decal into water for around 30 seconds. The backing simply slides off leaving me to slide the decal onto the mug – easy enough for anyone to master.

Remember though, if you are using pictures of celebrities that you have found on the Internet, you are not allowed to sell your finished mug.

Clear Dry Rub Off Decal Paper

Our dry rub off decal paper can provide superb quality decals without using clear acrylic spray or submerging into water.

Dry Rub-Off is popular with card makers and arts and crafts enthusiasts. It allows you to print your own pictures, designs, toppers etc to paper or card leaving you with a virtually flush edge around your decal and the card that you’ve applied it to.

Also use for printing onto ceramics and glass as well as virtually any clean, dry surface including ribbon, chipboard, foam and wood. A must try product guaranteed to bring a smile for your efforts.

We are one of only a handful of companies in Europe to stock this fascinating product at the lowest price at £9.79 for a pack of 5 A4 sheets, enough for potentially hundreds of decals.

This also includes 5 sheets of adhesive film and full instructions.

Steps involved:

Each A4 sheet of dry rub off paper comes with an A4 adhesive film sheet. Print out your design onto the rub off paper then roughly cut out an equal size piece from the adhesive film.

Apply the adhesive film to your decal, smooth out (rub) and then exactly cut out your decal. Peel away the adhesive film and then apply your design to your desired surface.

Now use a coin or lollipop stick to gently rub the top of your design to bond your decal to its new surface. Lastly, peel off the shiny side of the rub off paper to reveal your finished decal, now at one with its new surface.

Our entire range of paper products come with full instructions along with all those helpful little craft tips that we’ve picked up along the way.
