it works really good just make sure to press down edges and to rough up an area before applying

I just used it for the first time. It works just as you'd think. I used Pictures printed on glossy printer paper this time but found them to be a bit too thick. They worked , but they were hard to get stuck into some curves. Im doing another body and now I am using regular printer paper and a light coat of clear fixative to keep them from getting all funky. Either way good luck on those compound curves.

yeah photo paper works well on flat sufaces like that and my roof piece (folds in that were a bear) You can see the paint blurb on the right side of my hood too thast where some air came out from under the pic via a crease. Thats the compound curve I meant. My next body is a tribute to The Death Dealer, a painting by Frank Frazetta

parma faskote works great. i spray it with an air brush. you dont need a lot. just enough to coat the pic. ive never tried printer paper because i assumed it would bleed. magazine pictures and on flat areas, calander pics are what i use. plan way ahead so you can place it in one shot. i have never scuffed the inside it doesnt seem necessary.

I made my own decals on regular printer paper and use the XXX Picture glue. So far so good.
