WonderSauce is a water based ready to use solution for transferring images to a substrate that will not fit through and inkjet printer. Shake the bottle each time before using it. Then let it rest so the bubble rise to the surface. The contents are like
a paint and the ingredients may settle to the bottom. Or stir it from the bottom with a clean spoon. Store the product in a sealed container. Never dip a brush into the jar. Doing so can contaminate the liquid. Pour what you need into a small container. Do not pour unused liquid back into the bottle. Just seal the working container with a tight lid and it will keep a few days. Once you have worked with the WonderSauce you will be able to simply pour the right amount of solution on the substrate and never dip the brush in the container. It is a slightly viscous liquid that is a bit stringy. Do not add water
to the WonderSauce. Clean up spills with paper towels and wash brushes with soapy water. Store it at room temperature of 65-75 degrees. Never store a brush in the liquid like can be done when using the DASS SuperSauce alcohol base solutions.
The image you transfer must be printed with pigment inks on the DASS Premium Transfer Film. Photo Black inks must
be used because Matte Black inks will bleed. This film has an additional layer of emulsion that helps move the image completely to a smooth surface in one minute. The extra emulsion is always washed off after the image is dry. Once the image is dry the pigment is water resistant and adheres to the substrate. At this stage there will appear to be an irregular coating that you will feel on the dry surface. When held under water for one minute this coating will swell up and the slide off. You will see this milky slime wash away. Do not touch the surface. Use a hair dryer to dry the image quickly.
WonderSauce will transfer images to MDF, Econolite, mill finished aluminum, aged aluminum, birch, bamboo, hot press watercolor papers, stone paper and any smooth surface that will hold a thin layer of the solution on the surface. Arches Platine and Berrger papers made for alternative processes are very good as well as acrylic sheets, polycarbonate, P95 acrylic, black foam core, mirrors, birch, hardwoods and glass. The edges on all substrates should be sanded smooth with 400 grit sandpaper. WonderSauce is not for use on Dibond.
The WonderSauce has ATSM certification and is a good choice to use in class rooms or any studio that does not have ventilation necessary to use the SuperSauce products. The MSDS is available on www.DigitalArtStudioSeminars.com.
A 32 ounce bottle of WonderSauce will transfer about 100 letter sized images. This is the same yield as from the 16 ounce
DASS SuperSauceTM Concentrate.
