IOD Paintable Decor Transfers ~ What you need to know
IOD Paintable Décor Transfers are similar to original IOD Décor Transfers, but in a material and design that is ideally suited for coloring in. They are so. Much. Fun. And, their versatility makes it possible for you to make your project completely unique. Want to go with neutrals? Want to explode with color? Have it your way!
As always, apply your Paintable Décor Transfer to a clean, matte, dry base. Many people use chalk and mineral type paints on these projects, and they work great. Optionally, when using chalk or mineral type paint, we like to enhance the bonding between transfer and paint with a light coat of universal sealer or something that functions similarly, and allow it to dry thoroughly before transfer application (always take appropriate safety precautions and follow manufacturer’s instructions). When it comes to a good bond, there are a lot of different product related variables, so if you have questions, talk to your IOD stockist and they will be ready to help as they are experts in the paint lines that they carry, and IOD products.
Next, leave unsealed and color in. You don’t have to seal prior to tinting if you don’t want to, and whether you choose to will largely be affected by what medium(s) you are tinting with. For example, if you want to use our highly pigmented, watered down, DIY paint, it’s easier to control without beading on the surface that has not been sealed. If you have any questions, just let us know!
