TOPIC: Decal fell in water

Decal fell in water 01 Feb 2020 08:40 #1

So, one of my decals accidentally fell into some water. It soaked through and I fished it out and dried it as it was on the decal paper. My question is has this happened to anyone before and is the decal still usable if I re-wet it again or is it toast?

If it's on decal paper I'd think you can wet it and it'll be fine.
I told you photobucket sucks...

If you find it doesn't stick when you do get to using it, you could always brush a bit of Future on the spot and then apply the decal.

If it wasn't in the water very long and the decal didn't move around on the paper you should be fine. If it did soak for awhile you should do the future thing suggested by Jeeves. I often use the future anyway if I've had issue with a certain decal brand silvering.
