Default How to Remove Water Transfer Decals from Foam

I put some water transfer decals on one of my jets and it looks terrible, half tore or wrinkled. I don't know if it was me or crappy stickers. Never had such problems before. Anyways, I've tried soaking them with a wet sponge but it didn't even do a thing. Anyone have any idea on how to get them off, I wish I had some matching paint I'd paint over them but I don't. Thanks

Stick masking tape directly on the decal and pull it off. It works great as long as you didn't use any additional adhesive on the decals

I may try that but I had taped a couple things together while assembling with blue painters tapes and it was removing the paint from the foam when I removed. I may try and cut to shape a bit and try it though. Thanks
