Paste stickers

ER Classics Desktop 2022

cockpitPaste stickers. That's a simple job when you keep an eye on a few things:

It is of course useful that a sticker or transfer is in the right place when the work is done. This is considerably more likely if we measure the case from the front and indicate the location with the loosely applied painter's tape or piping tape.

With fixed points it is also symmetrical to work better, so that the stickers are on the same place on both sides of the tank.

* Thoroughly clean the substrate to be labeled.

* Then moisten the surface with water from a cup in which a drop of washing-up liquid is dissolved.

* Apply the sticker, the sticker can now be positioned by sliding it over the 'layer of water' on the paint.

* Press the sticker on the paint with a soft spatula. Work in such a way that no air bubbles are trapped.

Then be satisfied with the result achieved for the time being. For good adhesion, the water vapor must be able to escape from under the carrier film. If you want to remove the foil too quickly to be able to look proudly at the end result, there is a chance that the sticker has not yet adhered to its substrate.

Peel off the carrier film by folding it all the way back and pulling it back, sliding over itself, parallel to the substrate.

For example, the adhesion to the substrate is the least stressed.
