Water Transfer Printing Video Tutorials

Prep

How To: Flame Treatment

In this video, we demonstrate how to proper flame treat and ATV hood prior to the Water Transfer Printing process. This will help the paint bond to our substrate. Next, apply a primer, base coat, then process the part in your choice of Water Transfer Printing film.

How To: Phantom Flame™ Water Transfer Printing Film

TWN demonstrates how to apply WTP-813 Phantom Flame hydrographic film to a gun stock. It is important to note that all of our new fire-inspired Water Transfer Printing films have a right and left side. This allows you to wrap the desired object with a uniform flame pattern on both sides. For this Water Transfer Printing tutorial we used a green metallic base coat and recommend using light and vibrant base coat colors in conjunction with our Phantom Flame pattern.

Clear Coat

How To: Spraying Clear Coat

In the following video, TWN Industries demonstrates how to apply a clear coat after the Water Transfer Printing process is complete. This top coat can vary in sheen and increases UV resistance and protects against abrasion.
