Water Slide Decals
Anyone got any advice of preventing the edge of the decals showing?
Hello ZeusMC

Most decals I have seen have some thickness, which is inevitable since they are a separate piece of paper or plastic added to an existing surface. That fact alone suggests one will always see the edge of the decal regardless of how thin it might be.

Back in simpler times we used lettering from sheets to label control panels we made. These were the dry adhesive type that are on the back of the sheet and you rub the front side to transfer the letter. Even though these letters do not have their own substrate like a decal, they have thickness. To protect them we sprayed on clear varnish. The varnish helped even out the surface as well. Maybe varnishing might help with your decal edge issue?

Ok, thanks for the reply.
