I use stick glue to do the foil baits, doesnt make a big mess like the spray . The ink will not run after it has dried !!

I use elmers spray glue and glue to the foil. I spray a bunch on the foil and so the paper is very wet with glue so the foil color bleeds through more. push from the middle out of picture with some type of credit card

Yes you have to spray a sealer over your decal before it is applied or the ink may run on you...I just use a can of clear laquer from Walmart.Spray a couple thin coats,and let them dry..Nathan

If you use an ink jet printer, you do not have to worry about the ink running in case you use solvent based clearcoats, because the ink is water based, so you have to take care not to drop water on the image, because water will make the ink run.

I have used epoxy thinned with solvent, also propionate solution as clearcoats. No problem at all.

I have also printed some images with a color laser printer, and after clearcoating the image was very sharp.

I do not speak about decal paper here, which I have not used yet, and as far as I could get from the information here on TU, spraying a sealer on the image is part of the technological process.
