Hi guys, back again! I've got the sealer, decal paper coming in 5 days. Just one more thing: Is there any certain brand for decal solution? Does nail polish work? I know lukewarm water works( Thanks troopa!), but where can I get those. Nail polish?

Assuming by decal you mean printing... Well, I've never tried it, but a lot of people say brasso works pretty well at removing lego printing.

It does work. I once used Nail Polish Remover and pencil eraser, but that got a little bit... messy. Doh!

Brasso works the best. You can get the printing off of a torso in about two minutes or so.

I use eraser. Takes like half an hour, but it works. Razz Roll Eyes Embarassed

The reason is 'cause I can't seem to find brasso. Sad Embarassed

It's in supermarkets, it's a real brass cleaner in case you didn't figure it out. Razz

Magic Eraser works MUCH better though.

You are absolutely right! I thought I was the only one who figured that erasers work. But do Magic erasers work better than regular erasers? And where can I buy decal solution in Canada?
Thanks!

I don't mean to be mini mod here but I think you should have a look at the rules about bumbing old topics(if nobody has posted with in two weeks it's considered bumbing) hope I helped here Wink .

Wow really. Didn't you just get off a three day ban? Besides adding to a bumped topic is just as bad if you nothing to say about it. And ah “BUMPING” is spelled with a “P”. Doh!

So...

...waterslide decals. Shocked

I'm going to brush up on my water decal skills in next few days. But not on Lego. Embarassed I'm building a model rocket. Wow this thing looks

I am actually tired about Hoff, but whatever. Um, do I have to use sealant to make the decal stay on the torso?

If you want more durability and a better finish, yes use the sealant. Wink
