We offer a decal fixative in both aerosol and liquid form. Please note: Some clear acrylic aerosol may NOT work well with our water decal paper. For best results please use only Papilio decal Fixative. The Papilio water slide decal paper fixative is also available in liquid form as well as in aerosol cans.

Water slide decal paper for inkjet printers.

The Papilio waterslide decal paper (Water decal paper) can be used in almost any inkjet printer to create water slide decals. Optimized for inkjet printers that print with dye based ink but has also been tested successfully in Canon printers that use pigmented black ink and even works in the Epson Durabrite on high quality photo setting.

While the term water slide decal may not be familiar to you, most people have encountered them at some point in their life. Water slide decals are very thin, allowing your artwork, photograph, or text to look as if it had been painted onto the item you are applying the decal to. Most likely if you have ever assembled a model kit as a child, you are familiar with this style of water decals.

Using the Papilio water slide decal paper is simple: Print out your decals from your graphics editing software onto the Papilio water slide decal paper. Spray the sheet with a clear acrylic spray, such as our Papilio Aerosol decal Fixative or use the Papilio liquid fixative..

We no longer carry nor recommend a locally available generic equivalent such as the  Krylon Crystal Clear Aerosol. Even though this aerosol may be a good product in general it is not optimal to make flexible "easy to work with" decals.

After the Papilio fixative dries, cut out your decals from the sheet, leaving at least inch of space around the edge of the design. Place your decals in a bowl of warm water. The paper piece will curl up, and then straighten out again. Once the paper pieces are laying flat again, the decals are ready to be slid off the paper backing and onto your item. To apply large decals it is advisable to use a lubricating substance such as our Papilio decal Mounting Fluid, this enables you to move decal move around the surface of the item for accurate positioning without wrinkling  or tearing the thin decal material/film. It is also important to use a Rubber decal Squeegee to remove any excess water or air bubbles from beneath the decal.
