inkjet waterslide paper questions

Post  rogermharris on Fri Jun 19, 2015 11:12 am

i layed out and printed my first set of water-slide decals with some paper i found on ebay. wondering what's the best one you have found and how well it works. this stuff prints fine and i clear coated the sheet as instructed but seems to take a fews minutes to release from the backing in warm water and it will not "slide".
it's more of a peal and stick procedure. also... should i clear over them once they are in place and dry?

Roger I am no expert but I got mine from Decal paper palls , and used it one time so far and worked great slid right off , and you will need to clear coat with fuel proofer ,,,, needs to bee spray or put on really quick or will smear . Rusty helped me with this maybe he will have more to say on it . Here is a pic of my stuff    I know Roddie has done some really good work with decals ,,, The ones that come in kits are already fuel proof that is one reason I want to get some luster kote clear coat so I can put decals on monacote . I think just use that instead of the regular sealer will do the trick Smile

Designing and creating decals has been a bit part of my job for the last 20 years or so.

Just want to get the process down with the best materials. Would suck to spend a bunch of time creating decals just to have them not work.

Thanks for the info

That looks like the same paper I have. Mabee mine is older?

I use Testors inkjet paper from Hobby Lobby. White backing if you don't want your paint color showing through the "white" areas of the graphics. Clear backing for those that you want to show your colors through the "white" parts.

I seal them with a heavy shot of Lustrekote, give them a half hour cut them out and dunk them in water. Use very sharp scissors so there is no crinkle around the edges. Spray your target area with Windex or mildly soapy water so you can position them. Squeege with a rubber first, then a credit card with a polished edge for the finer bubbles. I also spray clear on a Q-tip to seal the edges after sufficient drying time. I made club decals for my car with white decal paper so it would show up on my dark windows.
