How-to-Make-Domed-Decals

Millions of decals are used every day for business and personal needs like advertising, labeling, decorating, and signage. The majority of decals are flat, two dimensional stickers.Domed decals, in contrast, add a third dimension because the surface area is raised. The dome is created by applying anepoxy resinover the top of a regular decal, which creates a clear dome. This catches the light and can make a two-dimensional domes colors and design stand out. Creating a domed decal is an easy and addictive process that you can do in your home.

Adding a domed layer of epoxy resin on top of your decal can lengthen its life. This creates a scratch-resistant, fade- and weather-proof layer. Resin is a mixture of two liquids that, when mixed together, create a chemical reaction that results in a hardening of the solution. Epoxy resin is generally regarded as the easiest for beginners to work with. It is easier to mix and is easier to make in smaller batches, such as for decals. It can also be more forgiving to work with because it takes longer to set up, which allows you to make your adjustments as needed before it hardens and is past the point of saving. When using epoxy resin, always follow the manufacturers safety precautions, and remember to weargloves.

For decals, you will want to choose a clear, color-free epoxy. Some epoxies are designed to fill a mold, while others are designed to level set. The latter is the kind you need. It is calleddomed epoxy

Work in a well-ventilated area. Epoxy is difficult to remove once dry, so cover your work area with a non-porous cover. Try to find eco-friendly, non-toxic epoxy that has less noxious fumes.

Computerprintable vinylor card stock

Print your desired decal onto heavy card stock or printable vinyl.

Brush a thin coat of decoupage onto the top of your decal and allow it to dry completely.

Set the dry decal image-side up on two craft sticks so that the edges of the decal are level. You can put a smalllevelon the sticks to test this if you are unsure. It is important to ensure that your decal is level because the epoxy will level set when you apply it.

Mix the epoxy resin according to the manufacturers instructions.

Drop a small amount of epoxy resin onto the center of the decal. Give it time to flow to the edges. Use the toothpick to nudge any resin in order to empty its edges, and pop any air bubbles that appear with the toothpick.

Continue adding layers of resin until the dome reaches the desired height. Resin will not overflow from the edges because surface tension stops it from flowing over (unless you use way too much). Remember to test your epoxy drops to find the right amount.

Let your decal dry for 12-24 hours in a cool dry place. You can speed up the drying process with ahair dryerset on low so the air current doesnt alter the domes curvature.

Dome decals are heavier than traditional flat decals. Therefore, a strongeradhesiveis necessary to ensure they will grip to the mounting surface. A thicker adhesive will fill the tiny crevices that thinner adhesives cannot.

Pouring too much epoxy onto the decal surface can result in the epoxy seeping over the edge of the decal. Print extra copies to practice on until you find the right amount, and make sure you use that amount on every layer.

As described in Step 4, the decal must remain level to ensure a proper curvature. It is important to let the epoxy cure the entire time that the manufacturer suggests. Not doing so can result in lopsided domes.

Bubbles are usually the result of too much moisture in the air, so try to do your work on a day when humidity is low.

Using domed decals adds a nice touch for your personal or business needs. You can create them easily at home in just a day.
