Print-it-yourself Custom Waterslide Decals

Bongo Thursday, 3/3/2022

I've got my first packet of blank decal paper on the way. Any hints or hardwon bits of wisdom you can share with an eager rookie driver?

Make sure you seal it... there's different ways of sealing, I like to put a mixture of 85% polycrylic and 15% water into an airbrush and give it 2 coats.  Not much more to it than that.  If you want brand logos is a good site for the vector files which you can resize in graphic design software.  Inkscape is a pretty good program for free, I think it should open those files but not guaranteed.  I use CorelDraw myself.

  • Thanks for the tips! That link is great! — Bongo

I print my own and seal them with a few coats of Aleene's Acrylic Sealer.

  • Thanks! I had read that thread -- super helpful stuff. I've also watched probably too many youtube tutorials. — Bongo
