Since 3D-Decals are significantly thicker than traditional ones, we advise to use additonal adhesive to put it in place. PVA-based glue is recommended, although Microscale MetalFoil Adhesive, or acrylic lacquer (such as Tamiya X-22 or Future Pledge) can also be successfully used.
Small parts can also be glued with cyanoacrylate glue. Keep in mind that using such glue requires extra care – accuracy, quickness and careful positoning are required since the drying time for CYA glue is very short. CYA gel based glues may be used for preference, since they do give user more time to position the part. For detailed working tips please check the photos.
Attention: Using decal softener solulons (Micro Set/Sol, Gunze Mr.Decal etc.) is NOT RECOMMENDED! You risk dissolution and damage to the embossed surface, by losing the crispness of detail due to its softening.
