I sprayed a set of Walthers decals with Testor's decal saver and some pieces blew into pooled decal saver spray which soaked parts of the backsides of the decals. Oops. Big oops. Does this render the decals useless or can soaking the decal in water during application allow the decal to come free of the backing paper?

Thanks!

Assuming that the decal saver you,'re referring to is the fixative that you spray on homemade decals after printing, you should be OK. Can't guarantee it, of course, but I think they'll be okay.

Thanks for answering so quickly.

These are storebought decals (see 'Walthers mention above), not ones I printed myself on decal paper. Perhaps there's no difference in behavior between decal paper run through a printer and commercial decals.

Much obliged.

Read my reply again. I was attempting to verify what product you were referring to by the term "decal saver". I made no reference to the source of the decals. But you're right, it makes no difference.
