The preparation of the surface prior to the application of the HGW Wet Transfer:

  • The HGW Wet Transfer technology has been tested on Gunze brand paints and preparations.
  • Carry out the test (not on the model), if you are applying to paint made by a different manufacturer.
  • We recommend to spray the surface with a glossy varnish in order to achieve a perfect result.
  • No matter whether you are applying the transfer onto paint or varnish, it is advisable to go over the surface using sandpaper of a grade from 6 000 to 8 000.
  • Naturally, it is also essential to ensure that the base is clean, grease-free and clear of dust.

You will need:

  • a scalpel,
  • sharp tweezers,
  • the Mr. Mark Softer product by Gunze,
  • a cotton bud and clean cloth.

Step by Step:

1. Cut out the required design using a sharp scalpel.
