How to seal Inkjet decals

RELATED TOPICS: DECALS
Q: I made some Inkjet decals on my home printer, and if I say so myself, they turned out pretty good. But I’m not sure if they need to be sealed. If so, what should I use?

Ken: You’re right, Steve. Homemade inkjet decals definitely need to be sealed,  and you can use several types of clear top coats to do the job. One of the best we’ve used in Krylon Crystal Clear, available just about anywhere spray paint is sold.  

You could use Tamiya, Testor’s or Model Master clear spray, too, but (and you’re all probably getting tired of hearing us say this) experiment on a piece of scrap decal paper first just to make sure everybody is compatible.
