・ First, apply a quick drop to the area where the decal will go using the brush attached to the cap.
・ Apply decal over it.
・ Apply gentle pressure to the decal with a soft cloth, removing any excessive liquid and sticking the decal down fast.
The decal will stick perfectly, even on uneven or curved surfaces.
・ If air gets in between the decal and the model surface, after drying delicately prick the decal with a needle and insert Mr.MARK SOFTER through the resulting hole. The air will escape, and the decal will stick down firmly.
■ Mr.MARK SETTER
In the past, Mr. MARK SOFTER was used simply to soften decals. However, now, using Mr. MARK SOFTER together with Mr. MARK SETTER (which gives decals greater adhesiveness) makes it much easier to affix decals to plastic models. First, the area to which the decal will be affixed is painted and the decal is applied. After air bubbles are removed by pressing on the decal with a cotton swab, a coating of Mr. MARK SOFTER is applied and allowed to dry. Because the decal now has greater adhesiveness, adhesive silvering (the floating and shiny quality of the clear parts of decals) can be firmly affixed to uneven surfaces. It is perfect even for poorly made decals from Eastern European models. Decals have better adhesiveness if the painted surface is prepared to have a glossy appearance, and they gain an appearance that suggests they were drawn by hand.
