Patto's Decals And Clear Vacform Bodies.

Recommended Posts

Morning All,

I'm planing to decorate a clear vacform body using pattos decals. So I'm looking for some advice on whats the best way to go about it in regard to the type ( peel and stick or water slide) and fixing to body ( inside or out)

Thanks in anticipation to your responses

Chers

Alan

Peel and stick all the way if you want to spray paint, water slide will only work if you hand paint after doing decals.

 

Personally I think stickers on the outside cut properly looks more realistic.

Depends on the thickness of the shell.

Very thin shells look ok on the exterior, but slightly thicker shells can have the decals look like they are 'floating'.

That said, decals on the inside can have their 'edges' show up quite badly.

 

Still, my advice would be to use peel and stick on the inside and LIGHTLY spray on the backing coat.

Thanks for all the replies lads, and thanks Pagey, I vaguely remembered that thread but couldn't recall where. I'll certainly make use of all that info.

Cheers

Alan
