playtime 222
So... inkjet printing of decals. I have made some British roundels with a bog standard HP inkjet. And the bloody ink runs everywhere when you soak the decal. I've tried what I thought was a good spray of Klear but that only helped a little. I also left the decals to dry overnight and the Klear a good 4 hours.

Do I keep going with more Klear? More drying time?

Looking forward to hearing other peoples success and horror stories as appropriate :D

Dan N Try using Testor Decal Bonder (spaycan) instead of clear. The last decals I printed we're good enough to be used, but not as good as regular comercialy printed decals. I think the quality of the printer (inkjet in my case) seams to make the difference. The first time I printed decala, a long time ago, the inkjet technology wasn't that good, so all the ink was scattering and didn't stick on the paper. So that's the first sign of a "bad decal to come". Lately, I was thinking of getting one of those printers that print white ink to make some decals, but they are a little bit overpriced for me. Hope that will help you.
27. March at 23:30:03
playtime 222 This: I think the quality of the printer (inkjet in my case) seams to make the difference :( I have the Microscale and Xtracrylic varnishes but no Testors Decal Bonder. Is the Bonder usually used for the same job as Microscale setting solution?
28. March at 11:25:42
Urban Gardini Never tried it myself but you've to seal the decals before use.
28. March at 11:33:03
Holger Kranich But very important: First apply decal film - THEN cut out decals!
28. March at 13:36:34
playtime 222 OK will get some of that in :D

Holger Kranich You will be pleased. And old decals are not a Problem anymore. ;)
28. March at 15:58:22
gorbygould Sounds like you've had the same problems printing decals that I encountered. I tried the liquid decal film that Holger mentioned and it was still the same. I gave up and assumed that it was because it was cheap generic decal paper.
28. March at 16:25:04
playtime 222 Thanks for the heads-up Gorby. The stuff I have is ancient and white but I believe the quality is fine. As alluded to above, I'm sure the ink is the root of the problem. I already contacted a local printer but they are laser and those printers melt the decal sheet. Need to find one that does non-water soluble inkjet printing if this solution doesn't work.

Looking for approximate matches for Signal Red and Roundel Blue (British roundel colours post-war) paints in the ranges my LMS stocks - Tamiya, Vallejo, Gunze acrylic, some Humbrol but alas no Xtracolour? Acrylic or enamel are fine. Thanks in advance.
