an Inkjet or Laser printer, waterslide decals can make a model
look unique and authentic.
solvents and softening solutions vary from brand to brand.
Some are mild, some can be very strong. Always test the
solution on an extra decal you don't need before using
on your finished model.
modelers like to shoot a layer of clear, whether it's
matte, gloss, or satin, onto their models to cover the
decals. Again, always test this first. Different overcoat
chemicals can react differently to decals.
paper is normally available in clear and white. Traditonal
printers won't print the color white, so you need to use
paper with a white background already on it to make decals
that are opaque. Especially if the decals will end up
on a dark color paint or plastic. When making your graphics
for the decals, always keep in mind any white spaces or
areas in the design.
sure and use the proper paper. Inkjet printers will bleed
on the wrong paper when printed, so be sure the paper
you use is compatible out of the box. Use Injket paper
for inkjets, and Laserjet paper for laser printers.
most all decal sheets, once printed, you need to seal
the decal ink to the paper. This is normally done with
a coat of clear over the decals / sheets. Sometimes you
need a thick coat, and multiple passes, depending on the
printer, type ink, and the decal paper.
