"Use in conjunction with Decal Solvent for perfection!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This product is the final kicker to produce outstanding decal looks. It helps set the decals into that painted on surface look and makes the decals look mint. So easy to apply, just brush on and walk away! Hit it with a coat of gloss/matt varnish after it has dried for a professional look.

Micro Sol setting solution is for difficult irregular surfaces you find on models. It completely softens the decal, allowing it to drape down onto the surface, conforming perfectly and without distortion. You can get the most amazing results in seemingly impossible places, because Micro Sol actually makes the decal part of the paint.

For that reason you should coat Micro Sol on for only a few seconds. Leave it alone. It does the work.. Do not touch until dry as the decal is very soft at this stage and could be easily damaged.

For the best result, first apply Micro Sol to prepare the surface and enhance the adhesive. Make sure the surface is free of particles that could get under the decal and blemish it. Then when it is dry enough so that it will not move easily, apply Micro Sol with a small flat brush. Apply with as few strokes as possible so as not to disturb the decal. Then just allow to dry. One application works in most cases, but if necessary allow to dry completely and reapply until the desired effect is achieved. Just by following these simple instructions, you should have a perfect professional looking job.
