Understanding Waterslide Decal Paper

Several types of waterslide decal paper are available, each tailored to specific needs. Clear and white variations cater to different background colors and finishes, offering customizers the flexibility to choose based on their project requirements.

Waterslide decal paper is versatile. It can be applied to an array of surfaces, including ceramics, glass, wood, metal, and select fabrics. This adaptability empowers customizers to embark on diverse creative projects, experimenting with varied materials for unique and personalized products.

How to Customize Candles with Waterslide Decal Paper

Now that you’ve gathered all the necessary materials, let’s explore the systematic process of embellishing candles using waterslide decal paper:

1. Design Creation: To start, measure the candle to find the exact design space. Use design software to create the designs you intend to transfer onto the candles. Ensure that the size of the design aligns with the candle’s surface.

2. Decal Printing: Load the EZ Peel Waterslide Decal Paper. Print designs onto the glossy side of the paper. Verify you are using the proper printer settings for the specific decal paper. (Instructions)

3. Precise Cutting: Once the design transfer has printed. Use a Heavy Duty Rotary Trimmer to cut each design from the waterslide decal paper. Leave a small border around the design for a neat transfer onto the candle.

4. Decal Soaking: Fill a bowl with lukewarm water and submerge the decal. Allow it to soak for approximately 30 seconds or until the decal begins to slide off the backing paper.

5. Transfer onto Candle: Slide the decal off the backing paper and onto the candle’s surface. Smooth out any air bubbles or wrinkles during the transfer.

6. Smoothing Process: Press down on the decal with a clean, dry cloth. Use your fingers to eliminate excess water and ensure secure adherence.

7. Drying and Sealing: Let the decal dry completely on the candle. Once dry, apply a thin coat of clear acrylic spray or sealant over the decal to safeguard it from wear and tear.

Customized candles are easy to make, and the design possibilities are endless.
