Re: Decal setting solution options

Here is what Tichy says:

Due to the problems some of you are having with adhesion of logos and other large decal areas, we have changed our recommended application procedure. Float the decal off the backing paper and blot dry with a paper towel. Use a Q-Tip to apply a thin coat of Elmer's clear glue to the back side. Position the decal with tweezers and press in place with a piece of stiff flexible foam (foam from a brass model box works great). Let dry overnight and over spray with clear lacquer (glosscote or dullcote).

HOW would Elmers white glue work on decals?

IIRC Tichy was suggesting using Elmer's or equivalent white glue with their larger decals. I just looked on their website and cannot find this advisory.
