2. Spray the paper with at least 3 to 4 coats of acrylic or solvent based spray varnish. Leave to dry for a few minutes between coats.

3. Cut out your designs using a craft knife or pair of scissors. When using white decals cut carefully around the object if you do not want a white border.

4. Place the cut out decal into a bowl of water for 10-30 seconds. You can feel with your fingers the decal slipping away from the backing paper.
