(I guess this is the group to put this in)

Lately, I've been reading about this speacial paper called waterslide decal paper. its supposed to make your stickers look like they were printed on the torso.

Problem is if you have an inkjet printer (like I do) You have to go through a long complicated process.

So I wanna know if there is anything that works in a similar way. Label paperwont work as good so dont bring that up. (please dont get off topic. I REALLY need help!)

waterslide paper is simple actually, if you check my stuff(little advertising there lol) you can see all I do is decals, no sticker, paper, or anything else. Just buy your paper from a hobby store, or ebay, get your designs on paint photoshop or whatever your using, and print the things onto the decals like regular paper. You do have to seal them with a clearcoat spray(I use krylon) then you cut them out put them in water and "slide" them onto the minifig. seal them again with the same spray, and the decal is now shiny and protected. :-)

Hm...I think what I was reading was for putting it on cups....well thanks for your help, but I still have one question. Is it possible to seal it with mod podge?

Obviously, no one knows, or they missed my comment....Well, before it was ok, but now it is not! I wanted to do some LEGO Elves (Like in LoTR not those but something like that) And I want them to have special faces I made for them, but when I tried using a sticker, when I put headgear on it it got all wrinkly and such and I cannot live with that! Torsos are fine, but the heads, no! So, if anyone knows if its possible to seal waterslide decals with Mod-Podge please tell me as I've already got this and can use it inside. Its a water based sealer so I'd think it would, but I would like confirmation as I'm on a low (and I mean LOW!) budget so I dont want to spend any money on decal paper if I cant seal it. Thanks in advance...

(Yeah, I DO overuse commas, but I dont really care too much at the moement....)
