There are two features for you on this page:
And if you'd like to see more waterslide transfers, on other pages you can:
First of all, remember the Golden Rule: Ask Mummy's permission before you put transfers on anything that isn't your very own. Now here are the transfers in their packet…
…& this is the front of the packet after they've been removed:
The instructions, which naturally apply equally well to most waterslide transfers, appear on the back.
So here are the results. Notice that the halo, which appears yellow against the carrier paper above, is clear once applied to the glasses — although you can still make out the edges.
Most waterslides are plain white at the back (since this makes a good background against which to display the artwork when viewed from the front); these transfers are more sophisticated, having artwork printed on the back as well as the front.
Filling the glasses makes little difference to the transfers when seen straight on…
…But seen through the full glass, it's a completely different story.
While we're on the subject of instructions for waterslide transfers, I thought I would include these because they are particularly charming. And besides, anyone who was a British child in the sixties or earlier will certainly remember Robertson's Marmalade, & consequently like to see them here. The transfers weren't nearly as common as the brooches.
NOTE: While these transfers will go on to most hard surfaces, they are not suitable for soft fabrics etc.
