Great product for setting decals. Also a decal remover. Softens decals and improves adhesion so they will conform to irregular surfaces. Use this product along with Micro Sol for best results and trouble free decal setting. Buy 10 or more for the best price.
- Brush Micro Set on the model where the decal is to be applied, then dip decal in water and slide off backing paper into position on the model.
Carefully brush more Micro Set on top of the decal.
Wait a few minutes for the decal to soften, then press the decal down with a piece of moist paper towel.
Repeat as necessary, or use MICRO SOL for more decal softening strength.
To remove decals: Brush Micro Set on the decal to be removed. Keep applying until the decal loosens, then rub off or lift the edge of the decal and peel off with the tip of a hobby knife. Works only on decals that have not been overrated.
Micro Set is a very versatile decal setting solution that does several things to Microscale Decals to improve application. Micro Set should be applied to the surface of the model where you will be sliding the decal off the paper backing. Micro Set prepares the surface with special wetting agents that cut the oils in new paint and convert the adhesive on the back of the decal to a stronger and longer lasting one. In addition, Micro Set slightly softens the decal film to make it more flexible so that it will conform better to the model’s surface. Better adhesion of the decal to the model prevents tiny air bubbles from forming and results in an invisible carrier film for the so-called “painted on look.”
To apply Micro Set: Use a soft flat artist’s brush and apply Micro Set where you are going to apply the decal. Then slide the decal off the backing paper using a small pointed tip synthetic bristle brush to carefully position the decal in its proper position. Blot the decal carefully with a tissue or paper toweling, being careful not to disturb its position. Allow the decal to dry overnight. It will then be ready for a protective coat of Micro Coat Flat, Satin or Gloss.
