making sticker edges disappear

Postby markf74 » Sun Aug 02, 2020 4:45 pm

Hi All, hope you can help

just finished my 2nd rocket build, the Callisto, and in general i am fairly happy with. I have added some decals that came with the kit , and as a final touch added clear gloss (rustoleum)in approx 5 light coats. now i gave it a light sand with 1200 grit , but i dint see any impact on making the edge lines disappear. is it just a matter of not enough coats , or am i using the wrong product?

Very nice rocket! I'm not an expert on sticker blending, but try just taking a few steps backwards :)

I hope somebody else will chime in with some knowledge you seek.
