yo syful.. its been a while lol..

bout those 2

Mr. Mark Softer is to make water slide decal melt and follow the surface... for example putting decal between the panel lines, groove, etc

Mr. Mark Setter is to make water slide stick better on the surface its does melt but only little than Mark softer...

hope this can help you :D

1 - dip your water slide decal into warm water for fast melt down.

2 - slide your decal onto a part. Use tissue to suck out excess water.

3 - apply the Mr. Mark Setter on the decal. Again use tissue if too much excess.

4 - After the setter dries, apply Mr. Mark Softer to make the decal looks like already onto the part. Wait it dries.

5 - Top coats.

I've been using Mr. Mark Setter and Softer for a few models already. They're for waterslide decals only. This is how I use them, and it makes the decal outlines nearly invisible :D

1. Apply Mr. Mark Setter on the model surface (already treated with gloss).

2. Apply decal.

3. Once the decal stays put, apply Mr. Mark Softer over it. The decal will crumple. Don't touch it; just leave it to dry.

BTW, added you to my blogroll! :)

What I do is coat the piece with gloss-coat, apply the waterslide decal, once it's in position I lightly apply Mr. Softer over top. I don't use the Mark Setter.

I find the Mark Softer works really well when applying decals to a surface that has been flat-coated, too.
