Waterslide transfer paper

Waterslide transfer paper

Waterslide paper is a type of specialty paper that can be used to transfer designs or images onto a surface. Here are the basic steps to use waterslide paper:


  • Waterslide paper
  • A printer
  • Clear acrylic spray
  • A bowl of water
  • A surface to decorate (e.g. ceramic mug, glass, metal)


  1. Create a design or image that you want to transfer onto your chosen surface. This can be done using graphic design software or by hand.
  2. Print the design onto the waterslide paper using an inkjet printer. Be sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions for loading the paper into the printer.
  3. Allow the ink to dry completely before handling the paper.
  4. Cut out the design or image from the waterslide paper, leaving a small border around the edges.
  5. Spray a light coat of clear acrylic spray onto the design, making sure to cover it completely. This will help protect the design and make it easier to transfer.
  6. Fill a bowl with water and soak the waterslide paper in it for about 30 seconds.
  7. Remove the paper from the water and gently slide the design onto the surface you want to decorate. Be sure to position it correctly, as it will be difficult to move once it is in place.
  8. Use a paper towel or soft cloth to gently smooth out any wrinkles or bubbles in the design.
  9. Allow the surface to dry completely, according to the manufacturer's instructions.

Your waterslide transfer is now complete! With a little bit of creativity and some basic materials, you can create unique and personalized designs on a variety of surfaces using waterslide paper.
