What is the Decals and How to Use It?

On our blog we have talked of various printing techniques and stamping. Today, it’s time to talk about another technique, this time related to collage but that gets results quite interesting, simple and elegant. We’re talking about a technique called Decals (also known as overlay in Portuguese).

In addition to being used in fake tattoos and walls, Decals technique is widely used in graphic arts, airbrushing, pinstriping and screen printing. This type of application was invented by Simon François RavenetFrench, a writer who eventually moved to England for there perfect the technique that he called Décalcomanie (meaning, translated from French, copy the edges of a figure 1-800-437-3635 USA).

After years of experience, the technique of Decals quickly became a success throughout Europe during the late 19TH century, being retrieved more recently for the decoration of houses, offices and other spaces.

Decals: what is the decals?

The decals is a type of glue that can happen when you rub a figure about a fabric or paper and she appears in the bottom object. See, for example, those tattoos stickers that children often use? Just pull the paper skin, pass a damp cloth over the top and the image recorded on the skin temporarily located?

The effect of decals is exactly the same … and the uses for which it is sought today are completely innovative. How should calculate, the decals can be used for other practices that go far beyond fake tattoos. This technique can be applied with excellent results, for example, on walls for interior decoration or even pieces of furniture or glass.

Among the advantages of the use of decals for walls is, of course, the cost of application, which is very low when compared to painting or wall using wallpaper. Another advantage is still the ease in removing the images match.

For example, the Wall Decal, i.e. the technique to paste pictures on walls, is increasingly popular because it is a very elegant spaces decoration and allow incredible effects in decoration of houses.

The big challenge is to find the right image to pounce on the wall of your home or Office to assign you an innovative effect and completely out of the ordinary.
