Decals are decorative items that add an extra layer of detail to your miniatures and scenes. The Green Stuff World waterslide decals have intricate pictures and patterns in a range of designs and colours that are applied with water requiring no solvent. These are a vintage posters set of decals with a great variety.

GSW Decal Softener and GSW Decal Fixer solutions can be used to improve and protect the finish of decals on uneven or rough surfaces. Two sheets are included which contain a huge variety of waterslide graffiti of different sizes and shapes allowing you to customize your dioramas, battlefield, building and miniatures.

Approximate Scale: 28-32-54mm (1/58-1/54-1/32)

Sheets: 2 per package

Size: 148 x 210mm (A5)

BASIC INSTRUCTIONS

1.- Cut the decal out as close as you can to the outer edge of the image. For better results, use a sharp blade in your cutter.

2.- Pick the decal up with tweezers and let your decal soak in water for about 20 seconds. Warm water can help with this process.

3.- Use a paintbrush to gently push the decal off the sheet and onto the model. 

ADVANCED INSTRUCTIONS

1.- Cut the decal out as close as you can to the outer edge of the image. For better results, use a sharp blade in your cutter.

2.- Pick the decal up with tweezers and let your decal soak in water for about 20 seconds. Warm water can help with this process.

3.- Once the decal has soaked long enough, apply a bit of GSW Decal Fixer to the surface of the model where you are planning to put your decal. GSW Decal Fixer protects the paint beneath and smooths the surface, thereby helping to prevent silvering.

4.- Use a paintbrush to gently push the decal off the sheet and onto the model. If it is hard to move the decal around, adding bit more GSW Decal Fixer or water will help the decal float on the surface until it is positioned correctly.

5.- If the surface where you want to apply the flat decal is curved, like a shoulder pad, your decal could become wrinkled. To avoid this, once your decal is in place, apply GSW Decal Softener. Let the softener react and it will help remove wrinkles, as it adapts to the curved surface underneath. Repeat this step 2-3 times until the wrinkles are removed. Remove any excess with a cotton bud to remove the liquid caught between the decal and the surface. Roll the bud over the decal so it does not lift from the surface. 

6.- Finally apply GSW Decal Fixer again to the decal and the surface of the model where you have been working to unify the surface. If required add a coat of varnish.
