Do you have a walk in retail store?
Sorry not at this time, we are a mail order website only and are not set up for walk in customers or order pick-ups.
How do decals work? Are they like stickers?
Decals are waterslide, they have a glue on the back of the image, and a backing paper behind that, which is usually light blue or white.
Cut the decal image you will use as close to the edges of the artwork as possible. Dip the decal in water for 10-30 seconds, remove and set on a paper towel right side up. When the decal image will slide freely on the backing paper, move the decal over where it will be applied on the model, slide the decal on to the model while sliding the backing paper away.
If you are not happy with the placement, apply a few drops of water on top of the decal and move it to the correct position. Once you are completely satisfied with the position, dab away excess water with the corner of a paper towel and let the decal dry completely.
Decal setting solutions are available. They help the decals snug down onto the model, and help the decal conform to irregular surfaces such as panel lines, rivets and complex curves. If you use a decal setting solution, apply it and then do not touch the decal until completely dry, even if it appears that the setting solution is distorting or deforming the decal. If you apply a decal over opening parts, a car door for example, lay the decal down and once dry, cut the door line with a sharp Xacto blade. Decal setting solutions will help the cut edges conform to the door ends.
You can also clear coat the model or just the areas where decals have been applied, to help prevent the decals from chipping or flaking off, especially if the model will be handled.
Here are some helpful hints:
*Decals stick to glossy paint surfaces best.
*Use tweezers to carefully move the decals into and out of the water, and to where the decal will be placed on the model
*Decals are extremely thin and can be fragile, use care.
