Gold size- printed transfers (Decals)

Anyone had any experience of applying these? I have a big run of them to do for a Pullman Railway carriage restoration job- They are brand new re-pros, and have the image in reverse onto clear cell- then onto stiff white paper (on the front). I hav'nt done any for a while, (and not sure i ever knew ...

Thats very interesting Dave- Wow what a nice thing to find- Those door glass panels look like they were done yesterday.
Even the Style does'nt look "Dated" ( but then good design never does eh?)

This post reminds me to "Pin down " a couple of old timers I know, while they are still around.

Nice project dave-

Perhaps try soaking the putty in linseed or cooking oil?....(its linseed based isn't it?..maybe it will soften overnight enough for you to scrape it off?)

Looking forward to seeing the finished piece..Bet you take LOADS of pics before you strip a thing like that.

Clear coat over copper.

Just wondering....What do you use to clear coat copper leaf ( specially put to the guys here in the UK)

I want to use some varigated copper on my shop vehicle but hav'nt got the kit to spray 2 pack.- something brushable- I can pencil varnish around with would be best.

Thanks

Interesting!- Here in the uk we talk of 8x4's- and 10x 5's ect. ( the phrase to remind us in schools was " In the house and up the stairs".)

However- after too many years of reading signcraft..I catch myself talking to clients about 4x8's :lol:
