Water slide decal paper for ceramic
Ceramic decal is a transfer system that is used to apply pre-printed images or designs to cerimic tableware, ornamental ware and tiles.
Decal typically comprises three layers: the color, or image, layer which comprises the decorative design; the covercoat, a clear protective layer, which may incorporate a low-melting glass; and the backing paper on which the design is printed by screeing printing or lithography. There are various methods of transferring the design while removing the backing-paper, some of which are suited to machine application.
The decal method is often used for the decoration of ceramic. A special paper is used but the ceramic colours cannot be printed directly and the actual printing is done in varnish and the color then dusted on. The decal is placed colored side-down on the sized ware, rubbed firmly, and the paper then sponged off.

Should I Use White or Clear Decal Paper?
The "Rule of Thumb" is to use white decal paper when you apply your decal to a dark surface and clear decal paper when you apply your decal to a light surface. When following this rule, the decals can be printed and applied easily.
Home printers do not print the color "white". When you print an image on white paper that has the color "white" in it, the white color you see is actually the color of the white paper ... not ink. If you printed the same image on clear decal paper ... the white area will be transparent ... no ink.
# # Clean the surface of your piece (where the decal will go) with alcohol and a clean cloth.
# Cut out your image as close to the edges as possible. Try to make curved rather than angled comers and edges. Sharp edges can cause the decal to lift up.
# Fill a shallow bottomed pan or tray with warm water. Soak the decal for 30-60 seconds, or until the cover coat and image begin to separate from the paper. (Sometimes the paper will curl and flatten out again)
# Moisten the ceramic surface where the decal will go with a wet sponge. This helps you position your decal without wrinkling or tearing it.
# GENTLY slide the decal into position on your piece, carefully smoothing it from the center outward, with a small sponge,soft rubber rib, or rubber brayer. This forces all the water and air bubbles out from beneath the decal. Check to make sure there are no air bubbles or edges that won't stick. If the decal is not in complete contact with the surface, it will disappear in the firing. If you need to reposition the decal, flood it with a little water first.
# Let the decal dry overnight.
