Dress Up Just About Any Surface
I first came across the use of decals in crafting through a reader’s question. I was so impressed by what I found, I wrote a series of articles about decals, how to make, apply and cure them, both to hard surfaces and fabrics.
Water slide decals are extremely versatile, allowing you to add original artwork to just about any surface. When properly cured, they can be exposed to the elements or washed.
If you haven’t considered adding decals to your craft work, read some of these articles. You might change your mind.
