I’m probably using mostly water 60/40. One question when using Future I assume by the property it leave a gloss coat.
I want to put down a decal patch of BCR that’s darker than the existing paint on the model followed by the weight, location and date. I want to avoid changing the base color of the carbody.

How diluted is diluted white glue?

Many years ago MR had an article on putting down decals with diluted white glue. I hadn’t tried it at the time but at one of our Missouri Pacific Historical Society annual meets Lee Freeman brought a scratch built O gauge T&P Muley caboose where he’d used the white glue technique. The decals looked perfect.
Here’s a CB&Q car I just finished and added Smokebox decals. I used their BCR decal first and then overlaid the weight and location using white glue. The glue dries flat but I’m open to other suggestions; I’ve got a bottle of Future handy
