Do i need a gloss coat before applying SMALL decals


Recommended Posts

I've heard we should gloss coat the model before applying decals in order to avoid silvering/wrinkling of the decals.

 

Does that apply to really small 1/72 decals aswell?

Yes. Across the board I'm afraid. You would hate it if a small but prominent decal silvered on your otherwise perfect model.

It is possible to dip the individual decals in future/clear or other gloss and then apply to the model.  But you would still probably need to do an overall coat of gloss afterwards to even it all out.

 

whilst this works for all decals, I found it particularly useful for tiny stencils that otherwise seem to often silver worse - maybe because there is more clear part than printing relative to its size.

 

good luck
