Mr. Mark Setter & Mr. Mark Softer



Mr.Hobby's Mr. Mark Setter and Mr. Mark Softer are two products that complement each other for water slide decal application. Mr. Mark Setter is an adhesive agent and it prepares the model's surface for decal application. In other words, it's used to make the decal stick better. The first step is to apply the solution to the surface that you want your decal to be applied on. Then place the decal on the surface and adjust accordingly. Once done, wipe off the excess of the solution and wait for it to dry. The best thing about using Mr. Mark Setter is that you can adjust the decal to the position of your liking while the solution is still wet.




The next step is to apply Mr. Mark Softer on the said decal.  Mr. Mark Softer is a solvent agent. This solution is designed to 'melt' the decal to enable it to stick to uneven surface like curved areas and groves of panel lines. Apply Mr. Mark Softer sparingly on the decal and wipe off any excess. Be careful not to apply to much because doing so will destroy your decal. You will notice that the decal will start to wrinkle when the solution is applied, don't worry and let it dry. Your decal will look perfectly fine once it's dried unless you have applied too much Mr. Mark Softer and screwed it up in the process. Because of its melting properties, your decal will look "painted on" when dried.

Some people use either one of these products depending on their need. Since I bought these two together, I use both of them all the time. I find these two products to be indispensable for water slide decals application. Definitely recommended.
