Decalcomania was first used by Simon François Ravenet, an engraver from France who had moved to England and perfected the process, which he called "décalquer." The process was much loved by Victorian children and became a popular parlour game before being explored again by the surrealists. Decalcomania is now known as transfers or decals and is employed from model making to tattooing.

Decalcomania is a print making technique where the paper is marked by a wet media such as ink or paint and is placed and pressed on a flat surface. The paper is then removed to create the print. This is not suitable for making accurate reproductions as each pressing and removal causes changes to the finished print.
