Blootstelling aan lucht, zonlicht, vocht, grote schommelingen in temperatuur / vochtigheid kunnen ertoe leiden dat de stikkers zich niet goed meer laten verwerken. Oude stickers kun je herstellen door ze eerst te coaten met MI-12 Liquid Decal Film voor het bevochtigen. Gebruik isopropylalcohol om ze schoon en flexibeler te maken.
Everyone should have Micro Liquid Decal Film on hand who models and uses decals, especially if you have been modeling for some time? The typical decal scrap box is not the best place to store the decals. Exposure to air, sunlight, moisture, great swings in temperature/humidity or general abuse, decals can go bad. Micro Liquid Decal Film solves all the problems you may have encountered putting on thin stripes that have broken apart due to being too brittle? Micro Liquid Decal Film restores old decals in most cases, and allows the modeler the ability to use old stock. Of course if you have already placed them in water it is too late. So, if you have some old decals you really have to use, coat them with Micro Liquid Decal Film to be sure? If you find any indication that you might have a problem, don't take a chance, you can solve the problem on the spot. Simply take a small brush and coat the image on the decal with a thin coat you want to use. Allow drying for 30 minutes and apply the decal as usual.
But that is just the beginning, if you want to make a decal of your own design; all you need is some clear decal paper. The unused margins of some decals you have will do or Microscale's clear decal film is even better. You can use ink, paint, and even dry transfers on Microscale's clear Trim Film to make a design. Then coat with Micro Liquid Decal Film, and you may be surprised at how well you can do. It is a lot easier to do art work on a flat surface than directly on a model.
