Default Rub On Decals

Hi

I got a set of rub on decals that is a bit aged and the glue is gone.

What is the best tack glue to spray or brush on the decal sheet to promote transfer?

Thanks

Nuno

it depends on what kind of decal this is. I used to make my own that utilized mylar transfer sheets, and Suly KK2000 worked for getting the decals off of the transfer sheet and onto the substrate. I am not sure if it would be applicable in your case or not , but may be worth a shot.

Amazon Amazon

this is how it worked ..


So it may be possibly that you could use the temp adhesive to transfer off of the foil your decals are already on.

One idea that sometimes works is to use heat gun lightly and rub off. Dry transfer paints when old are sometimes goners Sorry
