Easy Application Instructions

WET THE DECAL in a pan of water, which will cause the paper to curl. Remove to a flat surface and let the decal flatten (typically about 20 seconds). Tap water may be used for wetting.  A soluble food grade starch paper coating adheres the decal to the ware before curing. Over-soaking the decal to float free of the paper must be avoided as this may cause pre-curing adhesion to be lost. Replace water when it appears cloudy. When the decal must stretch over a curve, soak the decal and/or ware in warm water allowing the decal lacquer to become more flexible and easier to apply.

SLIDE THE DECAL from the paper in position on the ware making sure the surface is free of all debris before the application of the decal. Pollutants like dirt and oil between the decal and ware may result in fired defects. So clean the substrate, using common glass cleaners or isopropyl alcohol.

REMOVE THE WATER from between the decal and substrate by pressing with a rubber squeegee and/or a soft cloth. The squeegee is easily lubricated by rubbing it over the wet decal paper once the decal has been removed and placed on the ware. Once this squeegee procedure has been completed, no water pockets should remain visible.

DRY THE DECAL thoroughly, to avoid "blowout" blisters during the curing process. Although 5 to 10 hours may be sufficient, many decorators prefer to dry overnight. Others will dry the decal in minutes with warm air in a preheat process below the boiling point of water. One suggestion is to dry at 95C for 10 minutes.

Cure The Transfer in the specified time/temperature range. Be sure to leave sufficient time for the heat to "Soak" the ware at a temperature, which allows the decal to mature.
